Meet Viveca Chow, Broadway musical star from Hong Kong

October 23, 2016

Twenty-one-year-old Viveca Chow Hung-ka will be the first Hong Kong performer to display her talent under the spotlights of a Broadway musical in New York City.

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Viveca was just nine when she first set foot on the stage, as an ensemble member in a local production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. Ever since then, she has devoted herself to musical theatre.

“Every story, every musical reflects a larger problem of society that makes you think. It touches, it heals, it teaches,” she said, explaining why she thinks theatre is powerful.
