Stars in the House continues tonight (8pm) with the virtual reunion of the Original and Revival productions of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein’s Flower Drum Song, including Tony winner Lea Salonga, Jose Llana, Alvin Ing and librettist David Henry Hwang, and Tony recipient Baayork Lee, who appeared in the original 1958 production of the Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II musical.

It premiered on Broadway in 1958 and was then performed in the West End and on tour. It was adapted for a 1961 musical film. It last appeared on Broadway in 2002.
