Music and Lyrics by Eric Schorr
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.
Research for Tokio Confidential was funded by a generous grant from the Asian Cultural Council.
The Actors Studio in New York City hosted a reading presentation of Tokio Confidential at the end of February 2011. A production will take place at Atlantic Stage 2 in New York City in February 2012.
