Coming soon to another stage in Beijing, Veteran mainland actress Liu Xiaoqing has recently announced her new plans. In April at the Beijing Poly Theater, she will play the legendary but very controversial Sai Jinhua -- the famous courtesan of the late Qing Dynasty. Let's get the details.

The stage play "Sai Jinhua" will be only the second stage play for Liu Xiaoqing to ever perform. The veteran actress has an acting career that spans more than four decades; still, Liu said she's a little bit nervous because she's not that familiar with performing live on stage.

Liu Xiaoqing said, "I'm unfamiliar with stage plays, so I lack confidence. But I will try my best."

The stage play "Sai Jinhua" is based on the story of a legendary and controversial woman. Tian Qinxin, who recently directed "Four Generations Under One Roof", will direct this play. The female director hopes to present the contentious courtesan to the audience from a brand new perspective.

The play will make its debut at Beijing's Poly Theater in April. Then, it will go on a national tour to cities like Chengdu, Chongqing and Shenzhen.
