Tokio Confidential, a Richard Rodgers Award finalist, is an original music-theater piece about an American Civil War widow who journeys to Japan in 1879. While there, she falls in love with a renowned Japanese tattoo artist who, by drawing on her entire body and turning her into a work of art, unwittingly puts her life in danger.
This production blends elements of Japanese Noh drama with Western-style musical theatre.
