Congrats to Offender DHH (aka Tony Award-winning playwright David Henry Hwang) whose new play in collaboration with fellow Tony-winning composer Jeanine Tesori, SOFT POWER, officially opened this past Wednesday at the Ahmanson in Los Angeles!

And as you can see by the reactions from opening night below, looks like a great time was had by all.

Check out Entertainment Weekly’s review:

It’s sort of like the America it presents to audiences: a beautiful, provocative, profound, messy creation with no real solutions, whose reality is perhaps not as satisfying as its concept. But it doesn’t mean it won’t break your heart and put it back together again while trying.

SOFT POWER plays in Los Angeles until June 10 before opening at San Francisco’s Curran on June 20.
