As the leading character in the show, Chinese singer-actress Ding Dang (丁噹), and other staff are still unable to come to Taiwan for rehearsal, the organizer decided to postpone the performances both in Taipei and Kaohsiung.  

The musical adaptation of the 1983 Taiwanese film “Papa, Can You Hear Me Sing” kicked off its world tour in Taichung in 2018.

The actors expressed disappointment that they could not perform as scheduled.  

Ding Dang explained in a video that the crew couldn’t travel to Taiwan to meet you as scheduled due to the pandemic. 

“So we decided to postpone the shows, and I miss everyone, so I hope we can see each other soon and keep our musicals going,” she said.
