One-Show Musical Inspired By Vegan Humanitarian

A one-show-only musical debuted in Los Angeles last weekend and featured many famous meat-free faces.

Last weekend, the one-show-only musical, Loving the Silent Tears, took talent from over 16 countries and put together a show based on the poetry written by vegan humanitarian and artist Supreme Master Ching Hai who has made “be vegan, make peace,” her mantra. Some of the participating guest speakers at the show included vegan former Miss USA Susie Castillo and meat-free award-winning actors Corey Feldman and Kristoff St. John. Loving the Silent Tears, which was directed by Vincent Paterson, an Emmy-winning director and former director of Madonna, Michael Jackson, and Cirque Du Soleil projects, debuted at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on October 27.
