I’m really looking forward to this spectacular production and event with such an esteemed and diverse cast and production staff.
The red carpet premiere of Loving the Silent Tears: A New Musicalis anticipated as one of the most star-studded, spectacular year-end events, to be held on October 27 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
The musical will star 2-time Grammy winning artist Jon Secada, Grammy winning icon Jody Watley, and Broadway stars: Tony winner Debbie Gravitte, Tony winner Kiril Kulish, Tony winner Michael Maguire and Emmy winner and Tony nominee Liz Callaway.
They will be joined by Grammy-winning reggae legends Black Uhuru, Grammy-nominated Persian artist Siavash Shams, Arab singer Camellia Abou-Odah, Italian tenor Mark Janicello, award-winning Israeli singer Liel Kolet, Irish soprano Katie McMahon, and award-winning Brazilian singer Fabiana Passoni.
The first of its kind in theatre history, Loving the Silent Tears will take the audience on a cultural journey across six continents and 16 countries, to tell a story about humanity’s search for inner peace and happiness.
The show was inspired by a poetry anthology titled Silent Tears, written years ago by world-renowned spiritual teacher, humanitarian and artist Supreme Master Ching Hai.
Eminent composers have come together to set Supreme Master Ching Hai’s soulful verses to music: 5-time Grammy winner & Oscar nominee Jorge Calandrelli, 2-time Oscar winner Al Kasha, Emmy winner Doug Katsaros, 2-time Grammy winner & Oscar nominee Henry Krieger, Tony and Emmy winner Don Pippin, Grammy winner Nan Schwartz, and Oscar and 2-time Grammy winner David Shire.
Loving the Silent Tears will be directed by Tony nominee Vincent Paterson (Michael Jackson, Madonna), Emmy-winning choreographer Bonnie Story, Emmy-winning set designer John Iacovelli, and award-winning costume designer Sharell Martin.
With a superb cast and creative team, beautiful poetry as lyrics, plus accompaniment by a 30-member dancing ensemble and a live orchestra, Loving the Silent Tears will be an unprecedented musical experience.
