See What I Wanna See at the Jermyn Street Theatre


The London premiere of See What I Wanna See will be presented at the Jermyn Street Theatre in central London from 8 September to 3 October 2015.

The musical, which premiered at New York's Public Theatre in 2005 and was nominated for nine Drama Desk Awards, is written by Michael John LaChiusa and is based on short stories by Ryunosuke Akutagawa as translated by Takashi Kojima. Adam Lenson will direct with musical direction by Richard Bates.

Synopsis: "From medieval Japan  where two lovers seek to escape a doomed relationship, to modern day New York  where  a priest  is  wrestling with his faith, See What I Wanna See weaves together three stories of  lust, greed, murder, faith and redemption, where truth and lies have become entangled."

The production is produced by Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment in association with Jermyn Street Theatre.
