Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman, the creators of the Tony Award-winning musical Assassins, turn their attention to the westernization of Japan. This challenging period in Japanese history is told through the story of two friends caught in the inevitable winds of change. Mixing elements of Kabuki theater with the conventions of the Broadway musical, this is one of Sondheim's lesser known works, and a chance to see it performed is a treat. Pacific Overtures is a featured event of the Boston University College of Fine Arts Keyword Initiative, now in its third year. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "For the SpeakEasy Stage Company’s current production, a vivacious ensemble creates a community of absolutely irresistible characters, capturing all the life and energy of this Tony Award-winning musical." --Boston Globe
- "The characters are moving (in many senses of the word), and what will really stick with you is the pure energy and joy of the music and dancing in this marvelous production." --The Arts Fuse
- "Director Paul Daigneault captures the essence of the Broadway show, thanks in large part to the performance of Diego Klock-Perez as Usnavi in the role originated by Miranda. His rapping and overall presence provide the focal point of a high-spirited, sexy production. The ensemble work — dancing as well as acting — and the musicianship are pretty much universally the same high caliber as we’ve come to expect from SpeakEasy. Hats off to the whole behind-the-scenes team as well as the actors, with a particular shout-out to costume designer Elisabetta Polito." --WBUR
The show runs approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, with one 15-minute intermission.
