The Musical An Accident of Love, based on the 1983 blockbuster Papa, Can You Hear Me Sing?, premiered at the National Taichung Theater earlier this month. Musician Jonathan Lee and other artists attended the event and gave favorable reviews, and went backstage after the show to applaud lead actress Della Ding and the cast.

The musical tells the story of a mute veteran and his adopted daughter A-mei, whom he loses to showbiz after she is discovered. All the hit songs in the film version were sung by 1980s singer Julie Sue. Now, classics such as the theme song Any Empty Wine Bottles for Sale? are seeing the light of day again in this musical version. After the musical moved to the National Theater in Taipei last weekend, the show is to be performed today and tomorrow at the Kaohsiung Cultural Center.
