We’ve got three different locations for our tour of Something Wonderful I Missed: Holiday Edition, and tickets are live now – get ’em while they’re hot!

Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater’s innovative concerts mix great songs from Broadway and off-Broadway musicals with the often hilarious history behind those songs. Four versatile, talented performers, playing a range of characters to live piano accompaniment, will present a concert of holiday selections from musicals, from now classics like “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” and “We Need A Little Christmas” to lesser-known gems you might have missed from shows as varied as Striking 12 and Promises, Promises.

Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater is thrilled to present the NH premiere of the sexy, edgy and provocative musical See What I Wanna See. With music and lyrics by Michael John LaChuisa ( The Wild Party, Marie Christine, Bernarda Alba, etc.), it is based on three short stories, including the inspiration for the movie Rashomon, written by Japanese author Ryunosuke Akutagawa. The show explores themes of truth, such as how one person’s truth isn’t the same as another’s, and how a fiction can become a truth, or a truth become a fiction. Off-Broadway in 2005, the show calls for 3 men and 2 women with doubling, although the cast may be expanded. Its off-Broadway production featured Mark Kudisch, Idina Menzel, Mary Testa, Aaron Lohr and Henry Stram.

The show will be performed at Milly’s Tavern (in the back room) in Manchester, NH. Show dates are October 26-28 and Nov. 2. All roles are available, and expanding the cast (i.e. no doubling) may be considered.

What the critics had to say in NYC:

“SEE WHAT I WANNA SEE is a little powerhouse of a show whose sheer intensity will knock you flat” —Wall Street Journal. “Mr. LaChiusa delivers songs that strike at the heart…the notions of truth and belief are extended to a cosmic level. “—NY Times. “SEE WHAT I WANNA SEE has all the music you’d want from Broadway—cool jazz and all-purpose pop—loaded with some of the most succinct, precise, sexually frank lyrics I’ve heard in musical theater.” —Philadelphia Inquirer. “An intelligent, adult musical that entertains and astonishes at the same time…This smoky, sexy saga enhanced by LaChiusa’s muscular, jazzy score, flecked with Japanese influences and tough, punchy lyrics, makes SEE WHAT I WANNA SEE a highly original, even innovative journey.” —Associated Press. “Sassily innovative, consistently tantalizing and insidiously memorable” —Bloomberg.com. “A typically smart work from Michael John LaChiusa, SEE WHAT I WANNA SEE is a must-see.” —Star-Ledger.

No need for long speeches. You need to be in Londonderry Sunday at 7 p.m. to witness a hilarious, entertaining, and even maybe educational evening for one night only.
