CALENDAR OF EVENTS
May – June 2018
EVENT: “Soft Power”
Play and Lyrics by David Henry Hwang
Music and Additional Lyrics by Jeanine Tesori
Choreography by Sam Pinkleton Directed by Leigh Silverman
A contemporary comedy explodes into a musical fantasia in the first collaboration between two of America’s great theatre artists: Tony Award winners David Henry Hwang (“M. Butterfly”) and Jeanine Tesori (“Fun Home”). “Soft Power” rewinds our recent political history and plays it back, a century later, through the Chinese lens of a future, beloved East-meets-West musical. In the musical, a Chinese executive who is visiting America finds himself falling in love with a good-hearted U.S. leader as the power balance between their two countries shifts following the 2016 election.
