The Museum of the Chinese in America just debuted a pretty cool theatrical show as part of "This is NY: Celebrating Our Immigrant Heritage and Communities" from the Festival of New York.

Double Happiness is a new, original play that both teenagers and adults can enjoy on a cultural and a culinary level. The show includes a 10-course meal curated by the city's oldest Chinese restaurant, Nom Wah Tea Parlor in Manhattan's Chinatown, that resembles a traditional Chinese wedding banquet. 

The immersive theater experience follows characters Claire and Alex as, according to a press release, "they attempt to combine cultures and merge families at their wedding banquet." Exploring the nuances within the Chinese American immigrant identity through food and comedy, the show is written by Emily Locke and will run through next weekend.

You can buy tickets for various performances right here.
