February 8th marks the beginning of the Chinese Lunar New Year, and the Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company is coming to help us all celebrate. The festivities begin on February 6th at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark. 2016 is the Year of the Monkey, and it should be a good one. And if you’re hungry for really good Chinese food after the show, there will be a “Feast of the Monkey King” banquet across the street at the Robert Treat Crystal Ballroom. Christopher Benincasa recently spoke with Executive Director – and husband of dancer and choreographer Nai-Ni Chen – Andy Chiang.
