Pacific Overtures

Nippon. The Floating Kingdom. One of Stephen Sondheim's most ambitious creations comes to the Chocolate Factory in a co-production with Umeda Arts Theater in Japan, where it has already been a huge success in Tokyo and Osaka. The story of the arrival of the West in 1853 in isolated Japan is seen from a western perspective but played in an eastern style. The score is filled with some of Sondheim's most ravishing music, including ‘Someone in a Tree', ‘Pretty Lady' and ‘A Bowler Hat'. Pacific Overtures completes the Menier's trilogy of Weidman/Sondheim musicals following their productions of Assassins and Road Show.
