    The man is already distant, but his works are timeless
    Hugh K. S. LEE Classic Comedy continues to delight city audiences

    Can Three Make It? was created by Hugh K. S. LEE in 1987. The play, inspired by an experimental comedy in which one performer plays multiple characters, is divided into six episodes, presenting the intertwined interpersonal relations as well as various funny and absurd phenomena in the urban lives through minimalist settings and props. At its premiere in 1988, two actors and one actress played a total of 30 characters with 397 punch lines of laughter. On the opening night, the performers took a bow and received a standing ovation from the audiences for as long as 5 minutes and 58 seconds, making a historical record. The play has been claimed as Lee's most creative classic comedy.
     
    In July 2013, LEE passed away, and his wife Moon WANG immediately announced to shut down the Ping-Fong Acting Troupe indefinitely.  Many audiences are disappointed with the announcement and  thus look forward to seeing the reproduction of LEE's classic works some day. In 2017, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the Ping-Fong Acting Troupe, LEE's top female disciple Yu-Tang HUANG pays homage to her mentor by reproducing his classic comedy Can Three Make It?
