Softpower Musical

This ambitious “play with a musical” needs so much work I don’t know where to begin. Even the premise is all over the map. It deals with the 2016 election, Chinese use of soft power (uses ideas to change the world), immigration identity, Chinese communism, the electoral college, and letting down your guard to accept and give love. 155 more words

Red Speedo

The play delves into doping in Olympic swimming competition. The gist of the story is the relationship between two Kane and Abel type brothers.  The fascinating set design is the strongest element of this 90- minute drama. 26 more words
