World Premiere
Waterfall, A New Musical

Book and Lyrics by Tony Award Winner Richard Maltby Jr. 
Music by Academy Award Winner David Shire
Choreographed by Tony Award Nominee Dan Knechtges
Directed by Tak Viravan

The World Premiere Musical Waterfall is set in Bangkok and Tokyo between the turbulent years of 1933 and 1939, as a monarchy falls in Thailand and Japan is on the brink of war.  A young Thai student named Noppon (Thai superstar Bie Sukrit) falls in love with Katherine (Emily Padgett, 2014 Broadway Revival of Side Show), the American wife of a Thai diplomat, and the story of their forbidden love parallels history as the new democracy of Siam moves into the vortex of the increasingly anti-American Japan. With a gloriously romantic score from Tony Award-winner Richard Maltby Jr. (Miss Saigon) and Academy Award-winner David Shire, Waterfall is a modern love story of timeless scale.
