Pacific Overtures

Feb 2014

By arrangement with Hal Leonard Australia

Welcome to WATCH THIS

Following a sell out season of Assassins at fortyfivedownstairs in April, Watch This is teaming up with Manilla Street Productions and Theatre Works to present Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman's Pacific Overtures. The season will run from 19 February to 9 March 2014 and the creative team features Director Alister Smith, Music Director Robyn Womersley and award-winning designers, Eugyeene Teh and Rob Sowinski.

Press are already excited about this next venture, as the articles below attest. This season will be the first fully realised theatrical presentation of the Pacific Overtures in Melbourne, not neglecting concert versions staged by Festival Theatre Company and Monash University Student Theatre in 1995 and 1998 respectively. Another step on the road towards establishing a Sondheim repertory company - an Australian first which would create opportunities for artists and audiences to regularly explore and discover an extraordinary, diverse and challenging body of work by one of the undisputed masters of contemporary music theatre.
