“I only told you the truth.”
- In Feudal Japan, two lovers seek to escape a doomed relationship.
- In 1951 New York, a body is discovered but multiple testimonies of how it ended up there stubbornly refuse to align
- In 2002 New York, a priest wrestling with his faith orchestrates a hoax that backfires with unexpected results.
See What I Wanna See is a vibrant and provocative new musical that looks at the difference between what we think happened and what actually did. Comprised of three interlocking stories it asks us to question: do we ever see the truth clearly?
Michael John LaChiusa’s beautiful and unexpected music blends a plethora of influences from jazz and salsa to classical and pop into a fluid, cinematic score. It is a fiercely intelligent, heartfelt piece of theatre unlike anything you’ve seen before.
