The Journey To The West

"Sorry I don't speak very good english...I will call my friend, he can talk to you".

Friend: "Hi, are you looking to book my friend for a party? Oh, an interview? Sure.

My friends name is Fu Yongxin. He has been retired for some time now but he was a performer. Right now you can always find him somewhere in Union Square. The costume he is wearing represents a great classical novel in Chinese literature called Monkey or The Journey to the West. The novel was made very long ago in the 16th century during the Ming dynasty. It's a very symbolic story in our culture. My friends goal is to carry forward the Grand Opera Art. He would love to one day show people the art around the world. Right now, he is very happy making people smile".
