Join us for an exclusive panel discussion on the process and workflow of the music team for a major New York musical theater production from start to finish, from the first notes conceived through to the opening night and cast recording.
We are honored to have the entire music team of SOFT POWER, authored by Tony Award winners David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly, Yellow Face) and Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home; Violet; Caroline, or Change). This show had a sold out and repeatedly extended run at NY’s Public Theater, and was widely applauded by the critics.
One of the most exciting theatrical collaborations in recent memory, SOFT POWER is an exploration of America’s current place in the world, told through an East-West musical from China’s point of view, in which a theater producer from Shanghai forges a powerful bond with Hillary Clinton. SOFT POWER is a fever dream of modern American politics amidst global conversations, asking us all – why do we love democracy? And should we?
Moderated by renowned theatrical copyist Russ Anixter, the entire SOFT POWER music team will join us to discuss their process of putting this ground-breaking show together.
