New independent-music-theatre-company kid Watch This is back again with yet another gorgeous Sondheim musical, this time the musical master’s Pacific Overtures, so ethereal it has barely ever been performed in Melbourne. Backstage, cast are humming about at their one-hour call, whitening their faces and blackening their brows. They will don delicate white paper-doll kimonos soon, but meanwhile, show blacks keep them neat and well-groomed.
Pacific Overtures is on now until the 9th March at Theatreworks. These guys are splendid, so get your tix quick (their previous production sold out!) and check out their stunning costumes onstage, designed and made by the awesome Chloe Greaves.
