lost in translation

To entertain you, here is a sampling of the horrific translation that our Chinese audience reads on the supertitle boards, as our cast is singing American theatre classics.

English: “That’s why the lady is a tramp.”
Chinese: “That’s why the woman is a hooker.”

English: “Forget your troubles, c’mon get happy! Get ready for the judgement day.”
Chinese: “Get ready for the apocalypse.”

English: “Anything goes!”
Chinese: “Everything means nothing.”

Another addition to the long list of things that are all so very backwards in China.
