B. W. Wong, whom I remember well from M. BUTTERFLY, is slated to star.

it's terrific-- one of Sondheim's best efforts ( I think this and Night Music are his best musicals).....
a hilarious patter song a la G and S for four ambassadors, I believe it is, a beautiful trio for three sailors, and all sorts of amazing effects--

I saw a wonderful revival of PACIFIC OVERTURES at the Promenade Theatre (76th St.?) back in the early 80s. It was fantastic. Chicago Shakespeare also did a superb production about two years ago.
I would say my favorite Sondheims are:
A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC
SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE
INTO THE WOODS
November will be a very busy work time for me, but I really want to try to get a weekend trip together. ROUNDABOUT THEATRE COMPANY seems to be my cup of tea. Were they not also responsible for the production of FOLLIES that I adored on Broadway about two years ago?

I also remember BD Wong from M. Butterfly, and John Lithgow.....
Did you ever see Postcards from the Edge? Shirley MacLaine does a wonderful I'm Still Here in that.

Carol Burnett does a good "I'm Still Here" on a benefit recording of FOLLIES also featuring a glorious Barbara Cook and extremely appealing Lee Remick.
I also saw Delores Grey as Carlotta in London many years ago.
