Every city needs a "Chinatown"

Meant to bring audiences back to the heyday of Shanghai's glory days in the 1920s and 30s, Briton Norman Gosney has raised the curtain to an era where East meets West in the city's new "Chinatown".

Meant to bring audiences back to the heyday of Shanghai's glory days in the 1920s and 30s, Briton Norman Gosney has raised the curtain to an era where East meets West in the city's new "Chinatown".

Ironically housed in an old Japanese Buddhist shrine built in Hongkou district in 1931, the program "Chinatown" provides a mix of Broadway, Cabaret, Moulin Rouge and classic live Vegas variety shows along with Chinese acrobatics.

The show which made its debut last week aims to remind people of old Shanghai, which once enjoyed the reputation of a city that never slept thanks to its countless night clubs and go-go girls, said Gosney, whom along with his showgirl wife Amelia Kallman, are the creators of "Chinatown".

"Shanghai was once the jewel of the Orient and now is the time to come to the city," he added. "'Chinatown' is like stepping into a Hollywood movie that is set in pre-war Shanghai."

The 63-year-old who came to Shanghai two years ago with a quarter-century of experience running shows in New York and Los Angeles began plotting "Chinatown" after realizing an entertainment show like it was desperately missing from the city's bourgeoning arts and culture scene.
