Synopsis

ATLANTA PREMIERE 

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.
