Over the last decade, GWB has been at the forefront of the development of the commercial musical market in mainland China as well as touring significantly to other major Asian markets such as South Korea and Taiwan. In China, GWB opened new markets with tours of Disney’s High School Musical touring to seven cities in China and Ghost The Musical which toured to 14 different cities in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
