About The Show
Nippon. The Floating Kingdom.
One of Stephen Sondheim’s most ambitious, rarely seen 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 Sonheim/Weidman musicals following their critically acclaimed productions of Assassins and Road Show.
