Steven Sater & Duncan Sheik’s The Nightingale
From the Tony and Grammy Award-winning authors of Spring Awakening comes The Nightingale: a lush new rock musical, based on the classic tale by Hans Christian Andersen. Set in Ancient China, this is a contemporary fable about community -- and the power of a song from the heart to bring down the walls that divide us. It’s a story of forbidden love between the young emperor of China and a radical young woman from outside the Forbidden City walls.
Sater and Sheik have long held this show close to their own hearts, and have spent years re-developing it with director Zi Alikhan, working to center the piece on a company of API-identifying actors and creatives. This first offering stars Zachary Noah Piser (Dear Evan Hansen, KPOP), Dorcas Leung (Hamilton, Miss Saigon), Jaygee Macapugay (Here Lies Love, Shucked), James Seol (Come From Away, The Flight Attendant), Kylie Kuioka (The King and I), and John Yi (KPOP, Soft Power), with music direction by Ted Arthur (Back to the Future, Moulin Rouge). The Nightingale is co-produced by Emma Wang, with consulting producer David Lai (The Phantom of the Opera, Hadestown) and associate producer Elisabeth Siegel.
