The Lotus Lee Foundation is a newly established 501(c)3 non-profit theatre organization based in New York City which is partnered with the Lotus Lee Drama Studios, a theatre company founded in Shanghai in 2015. Our mission goal is to engage in a cultural exchange between China and the United States, to produce new works in the United States and China while bringing original theatre pieces and the most innovative theatre technology to those with previously limited access to it.

Current primary projects include our New Work Initiative, Children's Play Initiative, Global Artist in China. All of these projects stem from a passionate desire to inspire and encourage young people to pursue a career in the arts and to offer them an opportunity to share their voices and stories on the international stage.
At the Lotus Lee Foundation, we strive to connect with and inspire an international audience through new and emerging live entertainment markets in China. We are forthrightly dedicated to the distinct representation of a diverse roster of accomplished writers, producers, directors, choreographers, composers, designers, actors and stage managers from Broadway, Off-Broadway and the West End. Our primary aim is to nurture the world’s best theatre talents while continuing to seek out diversified theatrical opportunities for our clients in the exciting and ever-growing theatrical scene in China.

Join our many talented theatre artists and explore new opportunities with us today!
