Sponsored by one of New York’s largest nonprofit theater organizations, the Roundabout Theater Company, the Miyamoto production of “Pacific Overtures” is scheduled for a long run of performances from December 2 into mid-February of 2005. Prior to the opening, a symposium was held at New York’s Japan Society with Miyamoto and Roundabout Theater Company artistic director, Todd Haimes, as guest speakers. This production is taking place under a special cooperative effort by the Japan Foundation. An interview with Todd Haimes is scheduled to appear on this Performing Arts Network Japan website in January. http://www.jpf.go.jp/j/culture_j/topics/pacific/index.html
