Description

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.
