Abigail Arader is a STAR

My daughter, Abigail Arader, has today won (against 1878 candidates) the lead role in a revival of the Broadway musical "Comfort Women: A New Musical"
Opening night is July 28 and you are invited as my guest for the performance and dinner afterward.   There will be performances for all of August and you are invited for these dates if July 28th is not convenient again as my guest.
Hope you can make it.
Here is the write up of the upcoming show:
Dimo Kim Musical Theatre Factory's "Comfort Women: A New Musical," which premiered at Theatre at St. Clements 2015, is making an Off-Broadway revival at Playwrights Horizons from July 20th until September 2nd, 2018. "Comfort Women: A New Musical", written by Dimo Hyun Jun Kim, Osker David Aguirre, and Joann Malory Mieses, with music by Bryan Michaels and TaeHo Park was nominated for the Best Off-Broadway Musical by BroadwayWorld and has received critical acclaim for shedding a light on the untold story of 'comfort women.'
Set in Korea under Japanese colonial rule, "Comfort Women: A New Musical" tells a story about a Korean teenage girl named Goeun who embarks on a journey to Tokyo to make money for her family, but ends up at a 'comfort station' in Indonesia, where hundreds of teenage girls were abducted and forced to become sex slaves, also known as 'comfort women,' for the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II. The musical evolves around the stories of Goeun and other 'comfort women,' and the audience witnesses how such a tragedy can permanently and painfully transform the life of a young woman.
Based on true war crimes committed by the Japanese Imperial Army, 'comfort women' included girls as young as 14, who were promised with well-paying jobs abroad but instead were taken to islands in Indonesia to forcefully serve as sex slaves for 50 to 100 soldiers a day. Many died from the horrendous mistreatments, and the small number of survivors still alive today are scarred forever, living in shame and reluctant to speak out about what happened to them.
In 2015, "Comfort Women: A New Musical" opened at Theatre at St. Clements with a first-ever all-Asian Off-Broadway cast, led by an East Asian director. Dealing with a politically sensitive topic, the show garnered interest and acclaim for illuminating the truth and seriousness of the 'comfort women' issue, and recorded a sold-out run. The show also attracted a great amount of interest for featuring seven Japanese actors who did not shy away from portraying Japanese soldiers on stage, despite the Japanese government's long-time reluctance to apologize to the survivors.
"Comfort Women: A New Musical" is directed by Dimo Hyun Jun Kim, whose Off-Broadway credits include "Green Card" and "Interview". Just like the recent highly publicized success of South-North Korean Summit, Kim hopes this show can contribute to spreading peace and healing the survivors by sharing a piece of painful history of Korea. Kim is thrilled to provide more opportunities for talented Asian American actors and actresses to be featured on Off-Broadway stages where there are scarce opportunities for multicultural theatre artists. The show is associate directed by Mark Cirnigliaro, choreographed by Natanal Kim and music directed by TekGoo Kang. The design team includes Stella Hyun Joo Oh (Scenic Design), Byung Chul Lee (Lighting Design), Lucius Seo (Costume Design), and Tae Jong Park (Sound Design). 

"Comfort Women: A New Musical" will begin previews on July 20th, opening on July 27th and continuing until September 2nd, 2018 at Peter Jay Sharp Theater in Playwrights Horizons. This production is hosted by I.A. Lab and Hwarang Entertainment, and is produced by the Dimo Kim Musical Theater Factory, Sejoon Oh, and Matthew Thomas Burda. It is supported by the Korean Council for the Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan, and will proudly feature talented Asian American theatre artists. Worldwide auditions are currently being held for all roles.

Arader Galleries Hosts a USC Book Signing for Patricia Moore-Pastides in New York!

Thursday evening Arader Galleries had the pleasure of hosting a book signing event for University of South Carolina first lady, Patricia Moore-Pastides. Her book At Home in the Heart of the Horseshoe details the life and time of the Presidents house at USC. Following a warm introduction by Graham Arader and President Pastides, Patricia shared her inspiration behind the book as well as highlights of her writing process, including learning the personal histories supplied by former first families and residents. Alumni, family and friends of USC assembled from far and wide to celebrate at our 1016 Madison Avenue gallery. Mr. Arader hosted an intimate dinner at his club with guests including the Pastides, Alan and Shelby Ripka, Michael and Elyn Stubblefield, and Arader's Auction Directors, Taylor Rash and Annie Morony.

Arader Galleries has enjoyed a wonderful relationship with the University of South Carolina for over 8 years. USC has been a shining example of the success of the galleries' giving program. Through donating natural history artwork to be used within the classroom and displayed throughout the common areas, students are able to view the merger of art and science through art.

Further information on  At Home in the Heart of the Horseshoe is available through the USC website.

For further information on Arader Galleries giving programs and to get involved, please email curators@aradergalleries.com

If you would like a copy of Patricia Pastides book, Arader Galleries would like to give you one for your library.
