Emily Padgett leads the cast of of Waterfall, a new romantic musical set during the changing political landscape of Thailand in the 1930s, starting previews today for its world premiere at Pasadena Playhouse. The production has Broadway in its sights.

Waterfall will officially open June 7.

According to the creators, "Waterfall is an epic love story, 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 falls in love with 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, Waterfall is a modern love story of timeless scale."
