The World Premiere Musical Waterfall is set in Bangkok and Tokyo between the turbulent years of 1933 and 1939, as a monarchy falls in Thailand and Japan is on the brink of war. A young Thai student named Noppon (Thai superstar Bie Sukrit) falls in love with Katherine (Emily Padgett, 2014 Broadway Revival of Side Show), the American wife of a Thai diplomat, and the story of their forbidden love parallels history as the new democracy of Siam moves into the vortex of the increasingly anti-American Japan. With a gloriously romantic score from Tony Award-winner Richard Maltby, Jr. (Miss Saigon) and Academy Award-winner David Shire, Waterfall is a modern love story of timeless scale.

This post-Colonial fantasy loosely based on Shiva, the Hindu destroyer god, explores a vividly rendered relationship between a girl becoming a young American woman and the South Asian poet father who inspires and eventually disappoints her. By turns poetic, metaphysical, and richly human, the play paints a compelling portrait of how challenging it is to be an immigrant in a new country where all the rules are different. Tickets are $24, and available at http://qrs.ly/ta4nmfw.
