Watch Raymond J. Lee and Conrad Ricamora in David Henry Hwang's Soft Power
The new work features music by Jeanine Tesori.
Soft Power, a new musical collaboration from Tony Award winners David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly) and Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home), will have its world premiere this summer in California, but the coproduction by Center Theatre Group and the Curran recently offered a press preview in New York. In the work, a "Chinese executive 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." Watch Raymond J. Lee, Conrad Ricamora, and more take on this topical work in new footage from the performance.
