New Musical Waterfall, Inspired by Thai Novel, Eyes Broadway

first_img Additional information, including complete cast, creative team and theater, will be announced later. Waterfall, a new musical romance set in pre-World War II Bangkok and Tokyo, is eyeing Broadway. The tuner comes from the writing team of composer David Shire and lyricist Richard Maltby, Jr. The Tak Viravan-helmed production will play The Pasadena Playhouse in June 2015 and Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre that fall before a move to the Great White Way in 2016. Thai singer Bie Sukrit Wisetkaew is set to lead the cast, and Dan Knechtges will choreograph. Wisetkaew appeared in a developmental workshop production of the musical opposite Sierra Boggess. His theatrical credits include Behind the Painting and Rainbow in the Night. He has released six solo albums that have led to multiple chart-topping hits. According to The New York Times, Boggess is no longer attached to the project. Based on the Thai novel Behind the Painting by Sriburapha, Waterfall follows a young Thai student who falls in love with the American wife of a Thai diplomat. The story of their forbidden love parallels history as the new democracy of Siam moves into the vortex of the increasingly anti-American Japan. View Commentslast_img read more

Slaying the sludge monster

first_imgHe’s covered in sticky tentacles of frustration, endless inescapable globs of pointless paperwork, ridiculous rules, and cruel barbs of rejection and fees. The Sludge Monster is clogging up your membership growth, and he’s costing your credit union members and money left and right.So what is sludge, anyway? Sludge is anything that creates friction, frustration, bad vibes, or negative outcomes. Sludge slows everything down, and keeps people from completing tasks.In a credit union, sludge keeps people from getting loans, from opening accounts, and from bringing more of their business to your credit union. It can even sludge up your brand by making people feel ashamed, uncomfortable, or taken advantage of.Sludge is riskIn the credit union world, a lot of sludge is there through some misguided attempt at reducing risk – “if we ask for shoe size and a haiku on our loan apps, we won’t have as many defaults.”The problem is that every added slug of sludge also increases a few other kinds of risk. The most obvious risk is that the member will give up or make a mistake. Sludge is also a significant brand risk, making you seem old-fashioned, overly suspicious, or elitist. After all, didn’t they just see a commercial about a place that can approve a mortgage in a few minutes from their phone? So why is this car loan taking so long? Is someone back there using chisels on stone tablets?Leading the sludge slaughter is Marketing’s jobIf you’re a credit union marketer, you’re also responsible for your credit union’s brand. And being a good brand steward means going to bat for your members. Point out sludge where you see it. Ask “why” when you see something sludgy.It also means you have to get comfortable getting nosy in areas that don’t “belong” to marketing. Lots of sludge comes from moldy old processes, outdated products, and pointless policies. Part of your job is to find and manage these risks. Desludgification doesn’t always mean expensive or high-techSome sludge is there because of cost. If you’re hanging on to an ancient brand, a clunky website or lame online banking because of the cost to upgrade or exit a contract, take another look. That fusty old-fashioned reputation is probably costing you a lot more in the long run than the dollars and cents you’re “saving.”But desludging doesn’t necessarily mean spending a lot of money. And technology isn’t a cure-all for sludge. Sometimes desludging just takes  a few policy updates, or rearranging schedules, or rethinking a cumbersome process or product.To give just one example: the most popular days to visit a dealership and buy a car are Saturday and Sunday. Guess when most credit unions are closed and incommunicado?What would it take to do some creative scheduling, streamline your processes, and tweak a few policies to grab all those car loans you’re missing? The tech doesn’t matter much if you can make loans in minutes instead of Monday.Desludging pays off for everyoneWhile you’re saving your members all that time, frustration, and money you’re also saving your staff frustration and time. That frees them up to listen more, learn more, get to know their members, and give more meaningful service.In other words, credit union staff also suffer from every sludge. A “no sludge” culture leads to happier, more empowered staff and less wasted time. And that leads inevitably to happier members.Get out there, get nosy, and start your sludge hunt today! 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Brian Wringer Former watermelon farmer Brian Wringer wears several hats for iDiz Incorporated, including Web Projects Manager, Wordsmith, and Big Idea Guy.
