Jody Watley. A Once in a Lifetime Event “Loving The Silent Tears” Musical

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.
