By its fourth year in operation, the Mandarin boasted a Los Angeles branch, troupes in Mexicali and elsewhere, and a close relationship with the Jock Ming On Theater in New York City. This chapter focuses on the period of the Mandarin’s continued success as it expanded its reach into the community, attracted superstar performers such as the actress Li Xuefang, and staged ever more grand productions. The chapter closes with the return of Cantonese opera troupe to Vancouver to a theater named Mandarin Theater co.
