Press Cuttings 

"This musical is a warning to those who are getting married for materialistic reasons. The musical "Marriage" is about a man who has a broken spirit. He decides to fill the void in his life by getting married to a beautiful woman. He tries to capture her heart through a false display of himself and convincing her that he is rich. Eventually his plan fails and his true self is exposed. Even though he is revealed as being a poor man she chooses to love him because she fell in love with him for the person he is and not was he has. This happy ending may initially cause people to perceive that this musical is just your average musical but thisis far from the truth. The comical elements of this musical have helped it to surpass the quality of the original work. Several scenes have been dramatized in such away that audience have felt overwhelming emotion. The musical "Marriage" has been reborn through the efforts of the director who has an extensive musical background.The intention of the director is to demonstrate that love should be pure and the cornerstone of any lasting marriage" (Newstown). 

The Company 

Sam Il Lo Chang Go Theatre was opened in 1975. It was the first in the movement of small theaters in Korea. The Sam Il Lo Chang Go Theatre has played an important role in the history of the performing arts in Korea because most of the famous actors and directors have acted or debuted through this company. Unfortunately, due to reducing numbers of audiences, they had to close in 1990. Since that time this theater space has been used as a small print factory. In 1996 the building was taken over by The Chang Jak Ma Eul Theater Company. They renamed the building The Myungdong Art Theater. They soon experienced budgetary problems and were forced to close down. Several members of the theatrical field joined together in hopes of saving the spirit of small theaters. On March 1st 2004 the theater was reopened as The Sam Il Lo Chang Go Theatre which has earned the greatest historical value of Korean theaters.
