Reflections of the creation of SOFT POWER, and the journey along the way. An essay by David Henry Hwang.
On May 17, David Henry Hwang and Jeanine Tesori sat down in front of a full house at the Curran with Stephen Gong, Executive Director of San Francisco's Center for Asian American Media, to discuss the origins of their newest show, how to write a great song, and making art out of crisis. An edited transcript of their conversation follows.
Carole Shorenstein Hays raises the curtain on the new Curran. After a joyous, two year renovation and restoration, our mission is to create a home where art, technology and entertainment intersect in a way that can only happen at this moment in San Francisco.
At the Asian Art Museum through July 1, local artist Eliza Gregory is presenting Testimony—a project in which she invites Bay Area residents to share their personal stories as immigrants, and investigates the many layers of meaning within their experiences.

Having been the premiere entertainment venue in San Francisco for nearly a century now and filled over these past hundred years with many spirited characters (actors are haunted types), the Curran, in turn, is widely considered to be one of the city’s most haunted places and has become a key destination for ghost-hunting enthusiasts.
