Nederlander Worldwide and The Eastern Shanghai International Culture Film and Television Group partnered to present the "China on Broadway" production of Soul of Shaolin at Broadway's Marquis Theatre from January 13th 2009 through January 31st 2009. In celebration of the Lunar New Year – the year of the Ox, this new Chinese martial arts spectacle marks the first time a production from the People's Republic of China has appeared on Broadway, and has received rave reviews from press and audiences. Soul of Shaolin is scheduled to return in 2010 and start a tour in North America.

Direct from the 2008 Beijing Olympics, comes a theatrical event that is unparalleled on Broadway. Soul of Shaolin tells the story of a boy named Hui Guang who is separated from his mother by war. Hui Guang is found and taken in by the legendary monks of the Shaolin temple and raised among them. As he becomes a man, Hui Guang becomes an accomplished master of Shaolin Kung Fu and embarks on a spectacular journey of self-discovery.

Soul of Shaolin features 30 Chinese nationals who are highly skilled in Shaolin Kung Fu, the breathtaking martial art that has been featured in such films as Fearless (starring international superstar Jet Li) and Shaolin Soccer, both of which were recent US box office successes.
