"ON THIS SIDE OF THE WORLD"
Music and Lyrics by Paulo K Tiról Created with & Directed by Noam Shapiro
A World Premiere Musical May 11, 2023 - June 4, 2023
A woman flies from the Philippines to America with a one-way ticket and a suitcase full of stories collected from immigrants who came before her—tales of overseas workers, young lovers, and gossipy church ladies; snapshots of undocumented immigrants, millennial princesses and first-generation Americans. Suspended above the ocean, she replays these stories in her mind as she searches for the courage to embrace her future. This soaring world premiere musical gives voices to Filipino immigrants navigating old lives and new beginnings, eight-thousand miles from home. This heart-filled song cycle was presented as a staged workshop by East West Players in July 2022.
