He Was Deadly in Cha-Cha, Too


It should surprise no one that the actor Cole Horibe, cast asBruce Lee in David Henry Hwang’s new play, “Kung Fu,” about Lee’s remarkable career, was a contestant on the reality show “So You Think You Can Dance.” Lee’s fighting in movies like “Enter the Dragon” that established him as a martial arts legend always mixed brutality with a balletic elegance. And Lee himself was a dancer, even, believe it or not, winning a cha-cha competition in 1958.

Directed by Leigh Silverman with choreography by Sonya Tayeh, this Signature Theater production does not include songs, but rather uses martial arts, Chinese opera and dance to tell the story of Lee’s life, which was startlingly short. After starring in only a few movies, he died at 32. Doctors concluded it was a brain edema that was a reaction to a medication, although considering his fame, it’s inevitable that this news sparked a cottage industry of alternative theories, ranging from conspiracy to curses.
