Chinese musical Long Johns and Rolling Pin, which focuses on young people struggling to make a life for themselves in Beijing, will make its debut at the capital's Tianqiao Theater from Thursday to Sunday.

According to the show's director Zhang Wenxiao, who once worked for the Japanese Four Season Troupe, the musical took her and her team four years to bring to the stage.  

Featuring slang terms and topics popular in China's online culture, the musical not only aims to stage a comedy that will get audiences laughing, but also hopes to make people think by presenting true-to-life stories of the young people who are fighting and struggling today for a better life in big urban centers such as Beijing.

Naturally, music will play an important role in pushing the production's storyline forward.

According to the director, the production team has composed 14 original songs for the show.
