Tokio Confidential: A New Musical Review

by Marcy Donelson

With words and music by Eric Schorr, the Sondheim-inspired Tokio Confidential is a chamber musical set in 1879 Japan, about an American Civil War widow who meets a Japanese tattoo artist and decides to turn her body into his canvas. The off-Broadway cast recording features leads Jill Paice (The 39 Steps) and Jose Llana (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), along with Jeff Kready (Billy Elliot: The Musical), Telly Leung (Glee), Manna Nichols, and Bruce Warren. Tokio Confidential premiered at the Atlantic Stage 2 in 2012; the cast recording was released by Broadway Records in 2015.
