Ignite Theatre to Present SEE WHAT I WANNA SEE, 2/14-3/9
by BWW News Desk - Feb 12, 2014

'See What I Wanna See,' a musical about lust, greed, murder, faith and redemption, was named by New York Magazine as one of the Best Musicals of 2005 and nominated for nine Drama Desk Awards, including Best Musical. It is based on three short stories by the Japanese writer Ry?nosuke Akutagawa and unfolds like a classical Japanese screen painting. In 'Kesa and Morito,' set in medieval Japan, two lovers sing of the ecstasy and torment of their illicit affair and their determination to end it that night. Neither knows the other's intent. 'R Shomon,' set in 1951, New York City, follows the investigation of a crime of passion and the witnesses' contradicting versions of the event and where everyone's truth may be a lie. In 'Gloryday,' a priest, during a crisis of faith after a terrible tragedy strikes the city, plays a practical joke by posting an anonymous letter in Central Park declaring that Christ will appear, rising from the pond. On the day of the miracle only the priest sees what his lie becomes. (more...)
