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

In the town of Shirley, two thirtysomething dropouts hang out by the dumpster behind the coffee shop where they meditate on music, philosophy, 'shrooms and Bukowski. When a teenage employee asks them to relocate, these disillusioned young men find the disciple they’ve been waiting for. A beat tinged, psychotropic journey, The Aliens is a funny and heartening look at friendship, ritual and small town New England.
