Michael John LaChiusa’s three-part musical explores lust, greed, murder and redemption through the stories of a 1950s murder noir, a priest’s crisis of faith, and the final tryst of two lovers. A lush musical score combining jazz, pop, classical and Asian influences drives the story telling in this virtuosic piece named by New York magazine as one of the Best Musicals of 2005.
"Seductively stylish, sharp thinking person's musical...as smart and entertaining as it is artistic and serious."
–Chicago Theater Beat
"Passionately driven...a play of and about human crises, primal and existential."
