Hello. I'm relatively new here. I was wondering if anyone had any links and/or information on scholarly articles on Xi You Ji?
Thank you. Current Mood: curious
I found a community!
Well, just an intro. :-D Hi! I'm glad I found this community! I was browsing the net and found out that one of my favorite actors would be in an Off-Broadway production of "Journey To The West".
Anyway, I'm the type of person who likes to discover things, so when it said, "Based off of-" I had to figure it out. So, I haven't read yet since I'm still waiting for my book. I've listened to the music and it just seems like something I'd be interested in, so I decided, "Why not? I'm not reading anything right now?" Besides, it'll help since I can't actually get to NY for it's 6 show run.
Well, for those interested, please check out the site: www.journeytothewestthemusical.com
It's a nicely done site and you can download the soundtrack for free. Plus, it has a lot of information including a summary of the story. :-D
I'm off for now, but will probably report back once I start reading! Current Mood: cheerful

Steven Spielberg may be considering an adaptation of the 16th century Chinese classic "Journey to the West". Although nothing has been announced, the director, who will be an artistic consultant for the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, is reported to have met with a number of Chinese scriptwriters and producers. The text has already been adapted countless times in books, comics, television programs and films, including the Stephen Chow parody "A Chinese Odyssey". Current Mood: bouncy
