This startling, entertaining and thrilling masterpiece puts a cap on Spiro Veloudos’ multi-year Sondheim Initiative. An unlikely friendship is forged between a samurai, Kayama, and an Americanized fisherman, Manjiro, during Commodore Matthew Perry’s 1853 mission to open trade relations with isolationist Japan. The two friends are caught in the inevitable winds of change and tell the story of Japan’s painful and harrowing Westernization. A highly original, inventive, powerful and surprisingly humorous theatrical experience, Pacific Overtures was hailed by The New York Times as “musical theater at its most intellectually challenging. Extraordinary songs!” Enjoy this incredible show at Lyric Stage Company of Boston.
