Maple and Vine finds a thoroughly modern couple opting to eschew 21st-century society to return to simpler times. Katha and Ryu, a successful but disaffected duo living in New York City, meet a charismatic man from a community of re-enactors who live as though it's now (and forever) 1955. Deciding to trade their cell phones and sushi for cigarettes and Tupperware parties -- their wi-fi for hi-hi -- this couple soon discovers that it's not so easy to exist authentically in a world stunted by outdated gender, race and sexual attitudes. This well-reviewed comedy by Jordan Harrison offers a provocative look at what some people are willing to give up for a life of ignorant bliss. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Nothing is as it seems in Michael John LaChiusa’s staggeringly original musical about lust, greed, murder, faith and redemption. Based on Japanese short stories by Ryunosuke Akutagawa, See What I Wanna See consists of three short musicals. In “Kesha and Morito,” two lovers plot to murder each other – neither knowing other’s intent. In “R Shoman,” a murder in Central Park brings together a disparate group of New Yorkers, each with a decidedly different version of the truth. Act Two, “Gloryday,” follows a hoax perpetrated by a priest who has lost his faith. Each short piece weaves an intriguing tale in which a lie becomes truth and truth becomes a lie.
