On May 1st, New Millennium Theatre Company saddles up for the ultimate battle between good and evil in Gold Rush-era San Francisco in The Big, The Trouble and The Little China, a western re-telling of the 1980’s classic Big Trouble in Little China. Jack Burton is a reasonable guy that will experience unreasonable things when he teams up with his friend Wang Chi to rescue Wang’s fiancé (and Jack’s beloved horse) from the clutches of a local business man who may or may not be a mythological evil Chinese spirit determined to invade our world, even if it means bringing hell along with him.
