Here's how the show is billed: "Japan. 1879. Isabella Archer, a young American war widow crosses an ocean in search of a lost love—and is about to cross a line from which she can never return. It’s a journey across the boundaries between pleasure and pain, art and artifice, the secrets of the flesh and the sins of the heart. When Isabella falls in love with a renowned Japanese tattoo artist, she enters a world of extreme beauty, becoming an object of unexpected desire—in a realm of unspeakable danger."

Tokio Confidential is a Richard Rodgers Award finalist.

Other members of the creative team include choreographer Tricia Brouk, musical director Mark Hartman, set designer David M. Barber, costume designer Jacob A. Climer, lighting designer Joel E. Silver, projection designer Darrel Maloney, sound designer Carl Casella and orchestrator Zak Sandler.

Atlantic Theater Stage 2 is located at 330 West 16th Street. For more information and tickets, call (212) 279-4200 or visit www.ticketcentral.com or www.TokioConfidential.com.
