1940. Aiyi Shao is a young heiress and the owner of a formerly popular and glamorous Shanghai nightclub. Ernest Reismann is a penniless Jewish refugee driven out of Germany, hired to play piano at her club. Her defiance of custom causes a sensation and his instant fame makes Aiyi’s club once again the hottest spot in Shanghai. From the electrifying jazz clubs to the impoverished streets of a city under siege, The Last Rose of Shanghai is a timeless, sweeping story of love and redemption.
Moderated by Lorraine Kweskin, long-time community leader.
