PK Productions to Welcome Composer Stanley Silverman for UP FROM PARADISE Q&A, 23 July

Eminent composer Stanley Silverman to attend the UK premiere of Arthur Miller's only musical Up From Paradise on Wednesday 23rd July followed by a free post-show Q&A. Based on Miller's 1972 play The Creation of the World and Other Business, Silverman wrote the musical with Arthur Miller in 1973.

Stanley Silverman is an award-winning American composer, who has enjoyed several decades in both the classical and popular music worlds, as well as in theater and film. As a winner of the Obie, Drama Desk, Naumburg, and Koussevitsky Foundation Awards, and both a Tony and Grammy Award Nominee, Silverman has worked both On and Off-Broadway with stage luminaries including playwrights Richard Foreman, Arthur Miller, Anthony Burgess, and directors Mike Nichols, Arthur Penn, Michael Langham and Dan Sullivan.

He has collaborated with well-known pop artists and musicians, such as James Taylor, Paul Simon, Sting and Elton John. His classical compositions have been performed by Pierre Boulez and the New York Philharmonic, the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio, Michael Tilson and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.

Up From Paradise is a musical comedy re-telling the story of the world's First Family with all the satirical wit and wisdom of America's greatest playwright. Miller uses Adam and Eve to ask universal questions which have plagued humanity ab aeterno: why do humans flounder so? Who is really in charge? Who has ultimate moral responsibility?

This production marks the UK premiere of Arthur Miller and Stanley Silverman's epic musical.
