From the Tony Award®-winning author of M. Butterfly and the Tony Award®-winning composer of Fun Home, comes a brand new play with a musical.
A new production by Tony Award® winners David Henry Hwang and Jeanine Tesori, SOFT POWER rewinds our recent political history and plays it back through an East-meets-West musical in the future. A Chinese executive in 2016 America finds himself falling in love with a good-hearted U.S. leader, as the power balance between their two countries starts to shift and a new world order arrives.
"I want to do classics here. I want to do new work. I want us through our programming and the way in which we produce it to create a vibrant and magical time for us all." Carole Shorenstein Hays in conversation with Gracie Hays about the Curran's exciting new act.
