Description

Full Length Musical

A best selling novel, a Hollywood hit and a lavish musical in the grand tradition of American theater, Sayonara premiered at Houston's Theatre Under the Stars and has toured major cities. The classic tale recounts the haunting love story of jet pilot hero Major Ace Gruver and exotic Japanese actress Hana ogi, star of Japan's all female Takarazuka Theatre, whose forbidden passion grows against a lush backdrop of Japanese tradition, soaring melodies, and lavish production numbers. Mesmerizing, moving and entertaining, this is the first Michener musical since South Pacific.
