On This Side Of the World & The Village of Vale
- Filmed Performance
A 1-hour virtual live stream which will include excerpts from two new musicals: On This Side Of The World by Paulo K Tiról and Noam Shapiro. Stories of overseas workers, young lovers and gossipy church ladies. Snapshots of undocumented immigrants, millennial princesses and first-generation Americans. In On This Side of the World, six actors give voice to Filipino immigrants navigating old lives and new beginnings, as a one-way ticket sends them on a journey eight-thousand miles from home. The Village Of Vale by Jonathan Karpinos, John McGrew and Joseph Varca. Carrying only a pair of magical glasses and a desire for vengeance, an ageless Traveler returns to the village that once betrayed her. When she finally returns to Vale, she is caught up in the lives of the villagers who hold the key to her vengeance: an obsessed bookkeeper, a haunted widow, and the family of proud woodcutters that exiled her long ago. As her search for revenge upends the lives of everyone she encounters, she faces a choice that will change the village of Vale forever.
