Ugh….i jumped out of my seat too early….sigh.


Soft Power musical

A DC trip should happen now. I like the orchestration they did for the public theater, and hopes the music and the instrumentation stays the same. Cut out the discussion part in the beginning of the 2nd act would make the show so much tighter.

I hope Ruthie and Anna will be in the Broadway transfer if this is really going to happen!! Please let this be true.

Would very appreciate if anyone who attend the show could share what the orchestra made up in this thread. Thank you.


Soft Power musical

Does anyone on the board know if the “Soft Power” for Signature Theatre has a new reworded book? I saw the Public Theater production back in 2019 and thought it was very interesting the way Tesori and Hwang uses the structure of “King and I” in this musical within a play show.

There seems to be a talk that the show was going to transfer on Broadway but the book needed updates and revision. So I am very excited to see that the work has been picked up again i

The 2003 Revival was a great production with Banderas, Benanti, Krakowski, Chita Rivera, and etc.

love the orchestration, Tunick is a master. That bassoon writing and playing is so top notch.

Could someone please share what the band size is and instrument used in the show? Thank you.


Dave Malloy's THREE HOUSES at Signature
 May 8 2024, 11:34:58 AM

Saw the show and thought the orchestra and sonic design seemed thin. The band is even smaller than Lempicka. Wish there was an oboe, a bassoon, or a trombone to create a more complex music underscore, based on what I have heard.

Light in the Piazza (Ruthie Ann Miles). The production was breath taking, greating singing, and the orchestra was so great.
