Richard Maltby: We’re working on a big musical, which is currently called Behind the Painting. It’s a love story set in Tokyo. We’re really excited about it. There are a couple of songs from that that I think people will be intrigued to hear. And we’ll do a song from Take Flight , which has not been done in New York…”.

Thom Sesma who will take the role of chao khun Atikarn, a Thai diplomat talked about “Behind the Painting”:

(posted by Laichang @ liachang.wordpress.com)

“Behind the Painting is a very, very interesting new musical which I absolutely love, not just because it takes place in Bangkok, or that it has Asian themes, or that the leading man is a young Thai man. The thing that I love about it is that is an unapologetic, mature romantic love story between two grownups, with some of the most rapturous, romantic music that I’ve heard in a Broadway score in years. Very, very traditional American musical theater.

The plot is based on a very famous Thai short story which has been made into a couple of films there, is about a young man who has a love affair with the younger wife of a Siamese diplomat. This is in the years right before World War II.

In this incarnation of Behind the Painting, the Thai diplomat’s wife happens to be an American. This young Thai man, in addition to falling head over heels with this beautiful woman, is also in love with America. So much in love that he is in danger of cutting himself off from his Thai roots. It is an interesting journey because it is a well told story about how this American woman whom he loves, is obsessed with, and who loves him in return, is the one who inspires him to return to his Siamese roots…”.

    Hi, Malie BIFC. First, I want to thank you for the wonderful blog with lots of information and updates about Bie. Your website is great! Keep up the good work 🙂 I am a fan of Bie, the Star and also of broadway musicals. I came across the article you posted here online and would like to share this youtube video link:

    “Once You Fall In Love” sung by Jose Llana, another great Broadway musical actor. It was released a month ago.

      Hi Malie. I am hoping that it will be one of the songs that he will sing. The lyrics and melody are simple and yet beautiful. This song has lyrics that talks about falling in love and I think maybe it could be relatable to the Behind the Painting, the Thai version and hopefully, the American version.

      Thank you also for the latest pics of the rehearsals. Very interesting. I was surprised and happy to see one of the “Phantom’s Christine,” Sierra Boggess playing Cathering in the rehearsal. I haven’t seen her performance in person, but she’s wonderful. Thanks again. 🙂

    Hi Tazetta2583, thanks for the info. I should have looked for “Once you fall in love” on youtube. Didn’t think it was released, yet… wonder if the song was a part of Behind the Painting. It was a little unclear on the article.
