OTHER PROJECTS: Compositions


Journey across the noodle of time and space as Nam Nguyen writes a musical history of the Vietnamese diaspora, told through its foods.

A Perfect Bowl of Pho is an original musical written by Nam Nguyen, with music by Wilfred Moeschter and additional music by Sam Clark.

Pho was most recently performed at the 2022 Toronto Fringe Festival, being named Patron's Pick after a critically-acclaimed sold-out run. The show has also been performed at Factory Studio Theatre with fu-GEN Theatre (Jan-Feb 2019), at the 2018 Paprika Festival, and the 2017 University of Toronto Drama Festival,   


where it won the President's Award for Best Production. Translation into Vietnamese is in progress!

​⭑​⭑⭑⭑ (out of 4)   "(...) This iteration is one to catch if you can — you’ll want the bragging rights for having seen it before it deservedly hits the bigger stages." 

~ Aisling Murphy, The Toronto Star

NNNN   "Wilfred Moeschter’s music and Nguyen’s lyrics are at their liveliest and most amusing here ... I can’t wait to see the next iteration of [Nguyen's] show." 

~ Glenn Sumi, NOW Magazine
