Powerful and Romantic Jay Chou Musical ‘The Secret’ Comes to The Venetian Macao, Dec. 14-16, 2018

First Chinese production of its kind was adapted from Taiwanese superstar’s famous movie and created by top Broadway team

(Macao, Sept. 19, 2018) –Adapted from an original movie written and directed by Taiwanese singer and producer Jay Chou, and boasting an exceptional Broadway production line-up, THE SECRET musical will be coming to The Venetian Theatre at The Venetian Macao from Dec. 14-16, 2018. Including over 20 hits from Chou’s 16-year singing career, tickets go on sale on Sept. 20, 2018 at all Cotai Ticketing box offices.

THE SECRET musical tells a time travel tale about a romance between two students, lonely girl Lu Xiaoyu, who finds a mysterious musical score called THE SECRET, and Ye Xianglun. A beautiful love story develops between the young couple, depicted in scenes of reality and fantasy, with each of Chou’s songs providing an evocative musical backdrop.

The pair’s growing relationship is played out alongside societal themes, with humorous dialogue and plots twists incorporating powerful scenes including a piano competition, a passionate football game and dramatic prom night.

The movie version received six nominations at the 44th Golden Horse Awards and won ‘Outstanding Taiwanese Film of the Year’, ‘Best Original Song’ for THE SECRET and ‘Best Visual Effects’ in 2007. It was also nominated for ‘Best Asian Film’ at the 27th Hong Kong Film Awards in 2008.

The musical is the first Chinese production of its kind to harness the power of pop music in a Broadway, jukebox musical format. Since its first tour of Beijing, Shanghai, Wuhan and Hangzhou in 2017, tickets were virtually sold out. In April 2018 THE SECRET became the first original Chinese Broadway musical performed overseas, with 12 shows in Singapore, where it received an enthusiastic response.

The musical was created by a top Broadway team – directed by Tony award-winning director John Rando, adapted by renowned American scriptwriter Marc Acito, choreographed by the acclaimed Zach Woodlee, set created by Tony award-winning set designer Beowulf Boritt, sound designed by Kinky Boots Tony award-winner John Shivers and produced by Tony award-winning producers Marc Routh and Simone Genatt for China Broadway Entertainment and JVR Entertainment.

Presented by Chessman Entertainment Production and Sun Entertainment Culture, THE SECRET took over two years to produce and will be performed for a limited period from Dec. 14-16, 2018 at The Venetian Theatre. Don’t miss your chance to enjoy this spectacular original show!
