Thom Sesma on WATERFALL

Thome Sesma 91917

Waterfall had its first fully staged presentation at the Pasadena Playhouse this summer. The creative team will take what they learned from audiences there and make changes to the story, the design and the staging. But Sesma knows that the heart of this musical will never change. “The show is unapologetically about unqualified love—which is not to say its simple-minded or naïve or manipulative. But it asks audiences to be open to the simple idea of how romantic love can be transformative to an individual and how that can change the world.”

And of the audiences who saw the show in Pasadena, Sesma raves “they loved it. It’s a credit to the writing, too,” he adds, “that this very ‘traditionally’ romantic love story is wrapped up in a kind of mystery that kept the audiences so engrossed. So many people came up to me and said this was like a great Cinemascope romance that sweeps you away to another time and place. It has one of the most glorious and rhapsodic scores in musical theater in years. Some of these songs are beautiful beyond description.”
