The Tale of Kieu Musical is Getting Hotter

Thousands watched “Kieu Idol” Auditions on BYN 57.3 TV. More than one hundred people auditioned for the Houston World Premiere bi-lingual (English & Vietnamese) production, The Tale of Kieu Musical over several weekends. The judges narrowed down contestants from semi-finalists and then to finalists. Then BYN’s viewing audience had their chance to vote for whomever they thought was best to sing and act the roles of Kieu, Kim, Tu Ba Ma Giam Sinh, Thuc Sinh, Tu Hai, Hoan Thu and the other famous characters from Nguyen Du’s original epic poem. Over five thousand viewers responded within the final week by text messaging, faxing or phoning BYN TV to vote for their favorite performers. Finally, the Artistic Director and author of the musical’s book and lyrics, Mr. Burton Wolfe, of Worldwide Stage Incorporated, announced the winning finalists on July 3rd.

Mr. Wolfe stated, “I am very impressed with the amount of excellent talent in our Houston Vietnamese community, and that made it difficult to make our selections because there were several talented people for each role. But in many cases we have “double cast” the roles, with two performers to play Kieu, Kim and several other parts. This gives more people the opportunity to participate in the production. Between the double cast lead roles, singing chorus, solo singers, dancers, and martial arts performers, The Tale of Kieu Musical company is expected to number between forty to fifty people, or even larger.
The original Tale of Kieu was written by Nguyen Du (1766–1820), and is widely regarded as the most significant work within Vietnamese literature. The poem recounts the life, trials and
tribulations of Thuy Kieu, a beautiful and talented young woman, who had to sell herself to save her father and younger brother from prison. The words and phrases within the poem have been
used daily by Vietnamese people for their spiritual values, for motivation, encouragement and to face life’s challenges. There are at least sixty-five scholarly studies of The Tale of Kieu
and the poem has been translated in over ten different languages.
More is in store for The Tale of Kieu Musical as pre-events get even hotter! Soon “KIEU FEVER” will hit the TV and radio airwaves when month long dance competitions begin mid July at Houston’s DIAMOND CLUB, Wilcrest Drive. “Spirits of the Light,” one of The Tale of Kieu Musical’s climactic production numbers has been re-mixed into a dynamic dance piece that contestants at the Diamond Club can dance to in their own choreographed groups or with just two partners, in competitions for prizes.

Phone the DIAMOND CLUB or Worldwide Stage at 281-239-8139 for more information. Contestants can pick up the music CD at Diamond Club or download the music from the www.taleofkieu.com
website.

In addition, to keep the heat turned up, a splendid “KIEU GALA” is scheduled to take place at Kim Son Restaurant, Bellaire Blvd, Friday, August 27th. The Gala program will include celebrity singers from California, performers from The Tale of Kieu Musical, silent and live auctions, award presentations to Houston Vietnamese citizens who have made significant contributions to the Arts and Culture within the community, and plenty of dancing to the music! The Presenting Sponsor for the evening is Kim Son Restaurant. KIEU GALA Chairs include: Lucy DeVilla, Phan Duy, Teresa Ngoc Hoang & Michael Vu and committee members Linda Yang, Van Shotwell, Atif Bhanjee, Wm. Fields Leake, Lawrence Wong, and Burton Wolfe; all invite you to join the Gala festivities.

Many community leaders including the Mayor of Houston, Annise D Parker, Houston City Council Member, Al Hoang, Texas State Representative, Hubert Vo, President of the Vietnamese Culture and Science Association, Hung M Le and President of the Vietnamese Community of Houston & Vicinities, Joe Hoc Phan have shown their support for this innovative project. For further information, please contact Worldwide Stage at 281-239-8139, email:worldwidestage@gmail.com or visit the production website: www.taleofkieu.com.
