South Pacific

3hr. (1 intermission)


Winner of seven 2008 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical! This musical is based on James Michener's Tales of the South Pacific, and features music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein, and a book by Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan. It received the 1950 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. This new production is directed by Bartlett Sher, who won a Tony Award for his work. Although well known for its extraordinary score -- the songs include "Some Enchanted Evening," "Younger Than Springtime," "Bali Ha'i," "There Is Nothin' Like A Dame," and "A Wonderful Guy" -- South Pacific is also a deeply felt drama. Its portrayal of Americans stationed in an alien culture in wartime is as relevant today as when it first thrilled audiences in 1949.
