Shanghai Hengyuanxiang (HYX) Drama Development Company and Nederlander Worldwide Entertainment signed a deal on Nov 6 that would see Shimmer become the first Chinese musical to have an openended run on Broadway.

Shimmer, which tells a story about Jews who fled to Shanghai to escape Nazi persecution during World War II, premiered at the Shanghai Culture Square in 2015. Five days later, the musical was chosen as the opening show for the 17th China Shanghai International Arts Festival. In December last year, it was presented at the Edison Ballroom in New York's Times Square.

Directed by Xu Jun, Shimmer is a bilingual musical and performed in both English and Mandarin.
