Ip Man: The Musical

To our surprise, coming to a theater near you: "Ip Man the Musical". 

Produced by Robert Vicencio and Hongming Wang, the inspiration for the musical comes directly from the Ip Man movie and the martial arts movement it sparked. Ip Man's son, Ip Ching, has joined the musical's creative team. Auditions will be held all over Asia towards the fall. Casting, however, will be a bit tricky as actors should both be able to dance and perform martial arts before live audiences. Rumor has it the casting process may even involve a reality show.
