An excellent show starting with a clever reworking of two Japanese tales to stories of NYC, plus engaging and stylistically varied music from LaChiusa. Not just entertaining and emotionally solid, the stories raise strong contemporary questions of honor and relativism in the Rashomon first act, and faith and fear in the second act. The singers put across the words and emotions quite well, though at times with some patchy singing that didn't really harm the impact.

We enjoyed the show very much. The characters played their parts extremely well as my husband and myself are from NYC. I personally enjoyed the 2nd Act better than Act I. The scenery and props were great and worked so well with the small space.
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.
