PenArts, who presented last year’s production of SHINING LIVES: A MUSICAL, is pleased to present Michael John LaChiusa’s SEE WHAT I WANNA SEE, this year. This is a musical about murder, faith, lust, and redemption. The musical unfolds like a Japanese screen painting into three distinct tales that challenge the meaning of the truth and the contradictions of individual interpretation. The tales include “Kesa and Morito”, a story about two lovers with secret plans for each other; “R Shomon” an investigation of a 1951 murder in Central Park; and “Gloryday” presents the hoax a disillusioned priest concocts after 9/11 and the ramifications of his lie.
