Pacific Overtures - 1976 Original Broadway Cast

At long last- recorded on Broadway at the Winter Garden Theatre on June 9th, 1976 and then broadcast on Japanese public television, this is the original Broadway production of Pacific Overtures.

I had intended to upload this video ages ago, but had lost the video and was unable to find another copy. With luck, though, I managed to source the video again and I now share it for all of you. Please share this as much as you can- this deserves to be seen.

The cast for this production (playing various roles): Mako (in the lead role as the Reciter), Soon-Teck Oh, Yuki Shimoda, Sab Shimono, Isao Sato, Alvin Ing, Ernest Harada, James Dybas, Mark Hsu Syers, Patrick Kinser-Lau, Ernest Abuba, Larry Hama, Jae Woo Lee, Freddy Mao, Tom Matsusaka, Conrad Yama, Timm Fujii, Haruki Fujimoto, Freda Foh Shen and Gedde Watanabe.

The music and lyrics for Pacific Overtures was written by Stephen Sondheim, and the book was written by John Weidman. The musical direction was by Paul Gemignani, with choreography by Patricia Birch, orchestrations by Johnathan Tunick, costumes by Florence Kotz, and (a uniquely impressive) set design by Boris Aronson. The production was directed and produced by Hal Prince.
