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
