A newly-revised scene from Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman's 1976 musical Pacific Overtures will debut as part of the March 11 Shinsai: Theatres for Japan benefit. Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer-lyricist Sondheim and Tony-nominated book writer Weidman are among more than a dozen theatre writers who are contributing material to the benefit that will be staged by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher. Playbill gained access to a rehearsal for the performance, and here is a sneak peek at Paolo Montalban, Thom Sesma and the rest of the cast performing the new versions of "Four Black Dragons" and "Next."
