K-pop sensation Brian Joo and Heather Park are set to perform in the upcoming musical, Loving the Silent Tears, which will be showing on 27th Oct at the Shrine Auditorium, Los Angeles.
Loving the Silent Tears is a very unique piece of Broadway theatrical work as it tells the story about a quest for inner peace and long lasting happiness, and takes the audience on an elevating journey through 16 different countries, across six continents.
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, Emmy winner and Tony nominee Liz Callaway, and Tony nominee Patti Cohenour. They will be joined by Grammy-winning reggae legends Black Uhuru, Arab singer Camellia Abou-Odah, Italian tenor Mark Janicello, Korean pop star Brian Joo, award-winning Israeli singer Liel Kolet, Irish soprano Katie McMahon, Korean singer Heather Park, award-winning Brazilian singer Fabiana Passoni, Persian superstar Siavash Shams and Chinese platinum pop star Kay Tse.
Loving the Silent Tears promises the ingenious direction of Tony nominee Vincent Paterson (Michael Jackson’s Bad and Madonna’s Blond Ambition tours), lively dances choreographed by Emmy-winning Bonnie Story (High School Musical), the imaginative stagecraft of Emmy winning set designer John Iacovelli (Peter Pan), and a vibrant display of costumes by award winning designer Sharell Martin (Chicago).
With all elements in place to make for absolutely thrilling musical theatre, 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.
Taking a unique approach, multiple eminent composers have come together to set Supreme Master Ching Hai’s soulful verses to soaring melodies: 6-time Grammy winner and 2-time Oscar nominee Jorge Calandrelli (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), 2-time Oscar winner Al Kasha (The Poseidon Adventure), Emmy winner Doug Katsaros (Footloose), 2-time Grammy winner and Oscar nominee Henry Krieger (Dreamgirls), Tony and Emmy winner Don Pippin (Oliver!), Grammy winner Nan Schwartz (Harry Potter), and Oscar and 2-time Grammy winner David Shire (Saturday Night Fever). With the sheer volume of brilliant musical minds so generously pouring their creativity into the score, it’s evident that music lovers are in for a treat.
With a superb cast and creative team, beautiful poetry as lyrics, and accompaniment by a 30-plus member dancing ensemble and a live orchestra, Loving the Silent Tears will be an unprecedented show of grand proportions and five-star production value. The evening will commemorate the 19th anniversary of Supreme Master Ching Hai Day honoring the values of philanthropy and peace. A pre-show art exhibition at the venue will feature Supreme Master Ching Hai’s uplifting creative works, with free admittance for all attendees.
Loving the Silent Tears on October 27 will be a one-time extraordinary event that will inspire audiences of all backgrounds. So don’t miss it – and share the meaningful experience by bringing family and friends.
