Currently staged at Democrazy Theatre Studio, 2475 The Musical is inspired by the story of Thanpuying Phoonsuk Banomyong, the wife of former Thai Prime Minister Pridi Banomyong. Pridi was the leader of the civilian faction, the People's Party, or Khana Ratsadon, who carried out the revolution which ended 150 years of absolute monarchy.
The musical is set during a specific period of her life when her husband had to flee the country after a failure in staging a pro-democracy coup d'etat against Field Marshal Plaek Phibunsongkhram's dictatorship and when her son was imprisoned.
The real starting point of this production, however, was neither the figure of Thanpuying Phoonsuk nor the political event.
With several popular traditional Thai melodies that have been passed over for many generations, Pradit added new lyrics to fit into the turn of events and the mood of each character. The music will be played live with piano, cello, metallophone and the familiar sound of the Thai flute or khlui.
2475 The Musical runs until Oct 28 at 8pm at Democrazy Theatre Studio. Tickets cost 550 baht. For reservations, call 087-990-7660.
