Sunday Night Sondheim – Pacific Overture’s “Someone In A Tree”

 

 

Rare recording of  “Someone in a Tree” from the 1976 Broadway production of Pacific Overtures,
with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.   Pacific Overtures also had a successful revival in 2004.

There’s also a Chicago connection: A critically acclaimed 2001 Chicago Shakespeare Theater production of the show, directed by Gary Griffin, transferred to the West End Donmar Warehouse, where it ran from June 30, 2003 until September 6, 2003 and received the 2003 Olivier Award for Best Musical Production.

NOTE: Chicago audience’s have the luck of being treated to Pacific Overtures by none other than the award-winning Porchlight Theatre, runing March 18th – May 3, with previews beginning March 15th.
