See What I Wanna See is about lust, greed, murder, faith, and redemption based on three short stories that unfold like a Japanese screen painting. In Kesa and Morito, set in medieval Japan, two lovers sing of the ecstasy and torment of their affair. R Shomon, set in 1951 New York City, follows the investigation of a crime of passion and the witnesses' contradicting versions of the event. Gloryday, set in present day New York, presents a priest during a crisis of faith after a terrible tragedy strikes the city. This fascinating musical asks the question, "What is truth?" You'll be amazed by the kaleidoscope of answers. Writer of The Blank's smash hit THE WILD PARTY, Michael John LaChiusa is considered one of today's most intelligent and innovative musical theatre composers.
"This smokey, sexy saga enhanced by LaChiusa's muscular, jazzy score, flecked with Japanese influences and tough, punchy lyrics, makes See What I Wanna See a highly original, even innovative journey." ? AP
