Cap Stage Wine Wednesday – What’s Going On With THE GREAT LEAP?

June 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Update from Capital Stage

What’s Going On With THE GREAT LEAP?

We are sorry to say that we must cancel our upcoming production of THE GREAT LEAP. There is no safe way for us to produce the play at this time. We hope to bring back Lauren Yee’s play in our 2021/22 season.


You have several options if you have already purchased tickets to this show. You can request your tickets be converted into a donation. The donation of your tickets is a great help in these difficult times. Other options include converting your tickets to a gift certificate to a future performance or receive a refund.


Please contact us prior to July 31, 2020 to let us know how to process cancellation of your subscription tickets for cancelled performances. Because of the volume of requests, we ask that you email your response to boxoffice@capstage.org. We appreciate your patience at this time.

Thank you so much for your patience and all your support. We are working hard to get back to our stage when we can all be safe together.

The Great Leap

The Great Leap by Lauren Yee

Directed by Jeffrey Lo

June 17 – July 19, 2020
2017 Kesselring Prize Winner
Sacramento Premiere

When an American college basketball team travels to Beijing for a “friendship” game in the post-Cultural Revolution 1980s, both countries try to tease out the politics behind this newly popular sport. Cultures clash as the Chinese coach tries to pick up moves from the Americans and Chinese-American player Manford spies on his opponents. Inspired by events in her own father’s life, Yee “applies a devilishly keen satiric eye to…her generation (and its parents).”

“A beautiful play with vibrant characters and rich history crackling with fresh dialog.” – BROADWAY WORLD

“The Great Leap has got real game!” – BAY AREA NEWS GROUP


We created the “2014 Capital Stage” as a tribute to our friends at the Capital Stage Theatre in Sacramento.  We support their mission to entertain, engage and challenge their audience with bold, thought provoking theatre.
