Vincent Van Gogh and The Wicked Witch of the West team up!
...well...not exactly, but that's how I chose to see it. Of course, I see what I wanna see...which brings me to my point... but before I get to my point...Isn't that picture adorable? That's Marc Kudisch and my puggy-wug, Buddha at a party at our house last winter...I digress...
If you are in the NYC area this fall, definitely check out "See What I Wanna See" at the Public Theatre. Written by Michael John LaChiusa (The Wild Party, The Highest Yellow), See What I Wanna See is based on three short stories by Ryunosuke Akutagawa (translated by Takashi Kojima): "In the Grove," "The Dragon" and "Kesa and Morito" from the book "Rashomon and Other Stories."
Audra McDonald appeared in the premiere of the show (which had a different title) in 2004 at the Williamstown Theatre Festival.
In See What I Wanna See, several people describe the circumstances surrounding a murder, with each version differing from the others...
The sweetest man alive, Marc Kudisch will star alongside Idina Menzel, Mary Testa, and others.
I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Michael John and Marc last fall in The Highest Yellow at Signature Theatre, and I haven't stopped touching myself since.
