Choreographed by Dan Knechtges and directed by Tak Viravan, Behind the Painting is adapted from the Thai musical of the same name, based on the novel by Sriburapha.
The cast will be led by Sierra Boggess, Ruthie Ann Miles and Thom Sesma with newcomer Bie Sukrit as Noppon as well as Aaron Albano, Ali Ewoldt, Rona Figueroa, Katie Lee Hill, Emily Hsu, Raymond Lee, Koh Machizuki, Colin Miyamoto, Paul Nakauchi, Manna Nichols, Autumn Ogawa, Catherine Ricafort, Vincent Rodriguez III, Andrew Sakaguchi, Scott Watanabe and John Yi.
The musical, according to press notes, is described as an "epic love story, set in Bangkok and Tokyo between 1933 and 1939. 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."
Behind the Painting is produced by Scenario Co., Ltd. and Jack M. Dalgleish.
