Clap Hands , Here Comes Charlie

We read a Chinese director is planning to stage a musical based on the founding text of communism, Karl Marx's Das Kapital. The plot will revolve around a group of office employees who find out they are being exploited by their boss. There will be singing and dancing in this stage version of the classic communist treatise . Those behind the project say this approach will help people understand what many consider a dry, philosophical text. But the producers promise they will not trivialise Marx's central message.

"We will bring Marx's economic theories to life in a trendy, interesting and educational play, which will be fun to watch," said director He Nian .
