Notes from the Editor:

Not many Asian actors and actresses in the Entertainment Industry have been cast on Broadway Shows in the US. It is especially rare to find an Asian actor/actress taking the lead role. 

According to AAPAC, Asian American Performers Action Coalition (see chart below)… in New York city, only 3% of Asian American actors were cast on Broadway productions during 2011/2012.

the number went up to

Historical Moments:

It took khun Boy more than 10 years of his professional life in the Entertainment Industry and work on Broadway to accomplish what he just did… a director of a musical on Broadway!  

Today marks a historical moment especially for fans of Bie Sukrit and Khun Boy.

The news of them entering into the New York Broadway Show is more than words can describe. Bie Fans, especially in America, are anticipating and already counting down the days for the opening curtain to the Broadway Show “Behind the Painting”.

khun Boy and Bie, you did it!!!!!  congratulations!   We look forwards to seeing you on Broadway NY!!!

    So proud and happy for Khun Boy and Bie. They’ve come such a long way and have accomplished so many things. Can only wish for more blessings to come.
    Malie, will you be attending? I started planning my NYC trip 2 days ago. Hopefully we will have some time to meet and have a Bie spazzing party, lol. I was going to get in touch with BFC in Thailand to let them know that BIFC will be here to do our part in supporting Bie, that’s if none of them fly in from Thailand, which I’m sure some will. Let the fan plannings begin!

    • Malie BIFC
      October 5, 2013

      I would love to. This is my chance since it’s closer to home than to fly to Thailand. About 10 people I talk to are planning to go. Some people are looking for flight to NY already (even though it’s still early 🙂 I think once we have more information, like the theater that’s going to be playing, showtimes (both date & time), etc… we can seriously plan. Hopefully, we will have good weather in Jan and FEb of 2014.

      • Chuah
        October 6, 2013

        Haha, I have a Thailand trip coming up too, but I can’t miss this chance to see Bie’s musical debut in the U.S. Yes, me and my group of BIFC are just waiting for news on the theater and official dates so we can’t exactly book tickets yet. All we can do now is save up for expensive NYC and anticipate! I think it’ll still be shivering cold during that time, hopefully it won’t snow though. That’s a fat suitcase full of jackets for us. =/

      • Malie BIFC
        October 13, 2013

        Yep, NY is expensive… so, save up some money while we are waiting 😀 … me too, just hope the weather is good in 2014

    Yes , me too , so pround and very happy for Khun Boy and Bie . Congratulations !!!

    • Malie BIFC
      October 5, 2013

      Did Bie even imagine that one day he will be singing on Broadway? it’s such an incredible feeling.

      khun Boy is a little different because this is his career… But Bie is totally another story.

      • thanawanjohnstone
        October 5, 2013

        I read about Khun Boy profile , and I have a very high respect for him and his works . For Bie , I always believe in him whatever he is doing , he puts his heart and soul in it 110 % . Both of them are such a good team work and will be more successful in both continents , I’m quite sure .

    sis Malie, p’Muay did ask me today that where do you live in US… she just thought you live in NY and I told her that if she can go to NY I’ll ask your help to take care her, can you? she’s still not sure whether she can go or not, though…

    • Malie BIFC
      October 5, 2013

      I don’t know anything about NY. I’ll get lost myself when I go there 😀 NY is huge. It would be better if she asks someone who is familiar with NY. I am worried about myself, too…

  10. Malissa

    Where can I buy the ticket to this musical? Which theater will the musical be perform?

    • Malie BIFC
      October 8, 2013

      we have to wait for more information… i.e. date and time, location, where to buy tickets, etc… we are not there, yet…

    congratulations Bie Sukrit for going Broadway

    Hello Malie,
    Do you have any idea when they are going to give the official announcement of the Behind the Painting ( date , place..etc) ? I’m glued to the web board everyday because I prefer to book my flight when there is a special offer for an early booking . I also would love to meet up with BIFC if you have some meeting plan .

    • Malie BIFC
      October 12, 2013

      Hi sugarcane,
      all of us are waiting for an official announcement so we can make arrangement, etc… Acts channel talked about it today but they said we should wait to hear the official words from khun Boy.

      khun Boy is in Paris with family as we speak (saw his IG). I figure we hear more about it when he gets back to Thailand. I think everybody is waiting for khun Boy 😀
      we might hear something about it from Bie. He is filming his new MV on Sunday, 10/13… I think reporters will camp around the location waiting to talk to Bie… will see if he will say anything about it…

    October 15, 2013

    Hi Malie, reading your blog on a regular basis. It’s fun and informative! Really looking forward to Bie’s musical coming up in NYC, especially since it’s just one hour and a half away from me. We should really go and support. Jan and Feb are low season in NYC to some extent, as it’s just right after the holidays and it’s literally the coldest time in a year with the threat of snow storms! I go to New York often, and would love to share my visiting and trip planning experiences with you, if I may. And I can tell you and other folks here what we wear in the area as time comes closer. ^.^ Oh, just realize from your post that Bie is going to say “Katherine” many times in this version of “Behind the Painting”. hahaha…

    • Malie BIFC
      October 18, 2013

      Hi Kathryn… 😀 that’s right, he will say Katherine many times… imagine when he said “Oyasuminasai, my Katherine”…. you will be the happiest person in the theater!

      Jan and Feb are not the greatest month to visit NY… or Chicago… coldest and lots of snow…

      please keep coming here… many people would need lots of help/ info… like the best place to stay, etc… thanks for the offer… your offer is accepted…

    • Malie BIFC
      October 18, 2013

    Dear Malie and Bie’s fan,

    I am in Mahnattan, NY. I am happy to help you get info about NYC.

    If you plan to stay in the hotel it might be around $150-$200 per night.
    Another choices will be drom , YMCA or hostel might cost $ $40-60 per night.
    Broadway is around 42nd street area in Manhattan.

    Travel by subway MTA : http://www.mta.gov for more info and download map on your smart phone.

    Airport near by : LGA, JFK or EWA

    Btw, when/where is the show
    I have been checking on Broadway schedule but haven’t see any. Can anyone tell me? I am happy to cook some thai food and send it to Bie and K.Boy. I am sure they will missed Thai food in few day.

    • Malie BIFC
      January 29, 2014

      thanks Nuna for the info. It’s very helpful.

      At the moment, they are not sure if the musical will go Broadway… they are only half way to Broadway… they still have to pass another 50% of the test in order to go Broadway. Once they go Broadway, they still have to see which Broadway theater will be available during that time. So right now, nothing is for sure, yet.

      I feel that this current trip is a very important trip for Bie and khun Boy… they will perform in front of 300 people who are investors, musical critics, potential title sponsors…

      if they do well on this trip, I think road to Broadway is lot clearer… for now we cannot make plans, yet… let’s hope and pray for a successful performance.
