Synopsis:

Mary Chin may be good looking, with a nice figure and a high-paid job, and yet she is unhappy. Unable to understand why, she blames it on her long-term boyfriend Andy, who still has not proposed to her. Mary is fortunate enough to have three besties – Mimi, Martha and Jan – who all share similar outlooks on love and life. However, the appearance of the mysterious “blue blood-prince” Chang Cho-yam, will set these women on a collision course…

The Woman in Kenzo is the only musical adapted from the novel of the same name. It depicts the economic boom and glamour of Hong Kong in the 1970s. The School of Drama’s teachers and students are collaborating with Leon Ko and Chris Shum in this musical production to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Academy.
