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

An inspiring and moving story led by a terrific cast. It was hard to believe this was a Children's Theater Production- Stars in the making! Exciting to hear at the show, that they are working on touring this production as it's an interesting piece of the civil rights movement from here in New England.

Boston Children's Theatre is proud to bring back the critically acclaimed production of Reflections of a Rock Lobster. Based on the true story of Aaron Fricke, a brave high school student who in 1980 successfully sued his school for the right to bring his boyfriend to the prom, Reflections of a Rock Lobster is part coming-of-age story, part underdog story, part love story, part courtroom drama- and it's all true!
