Details

Tony Award winners David Henry Hwang (M. BUTTERFLY, YELLOW FACE) and Jeanine Tesori (FUN HOME; VIOLET; CAROLINE, OR CHANGE) bring their groundbreaking new musical-within-a-play to The Public for its New York premiere.

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?

Featuring the choreography of Tony nominee Sam Pinkleton (NATASHA, PIERRE, & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812), Tony nominee Leigh Silverman (VIOLET, YELLOW FACE, WILD GOOSE DREAMS) directs this exhilarating new show The Los Angeles Times calls "smart & wonderfully funny. A meeting of dauntingly innovative theatrical minds."
