Hilariously provocative, what begins as a contemporary play bursts into a musical set in the future in this seductive world premiere by Tony Award® winner David Henry Hwang (Yellow Face, M. Butterfly). A beloved East-meets-West musical, China’s 21st-century rise and a theatre company gala collide to make mayhem—and some beautiful music. Inspired by the West’s often ridiculously inauthentic portrayals of Asia, Soft Power is a Center Theatre Group commission and the first collaboration between two of America’s great theatre artists: Hwang and Tony Award-winning composer Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home).
