to undertake research in Japan in connection with the development of a new music theater work, Tokio Confidential
This musical by ACC grantee Eric Schorr, the coauthor of Frog Kiss, tells a sweeping story that flows through generations and across continents—from the shores of Virginia to Japan and Antarctica. Scientists, soldiers, poets, and lovers strive to understand and master the power of the oceans that connect us all. In collaboration with ODURep, this newest installment of the American Soil Series is an original and timely work for musical theatre that captures the urgency of one of humanity's most overwhelming challenges—to survive the rising sea.
