Numerous guests descended upon the after-party at Lotus on 409 W. 14 St. and welcomed Duncan Sheik as the new tunesmith to musical theater.

The Off-Broadway musical marks Sheik's first fully staged musical after garnering Top 40 success for his alt-pop songs. With colloboration from fellow lyricist Steven Sater, the story is derived from the sexually provocative 1891 Frank Wedekind play.
