About this show

Directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher and presented by the Lincoln Center Theater, this classic comes to Chicago in November! Set on a tropical island during World War II, the musical tells the sweeping romantic story of two couples -- US Navy nurse Nellie Forbush and French plantation owner Emile de Becque and Navy Airman Joe Cable and a young local native girl Liat -- and how their happiness is threatened by the realities of war and by their own prejudices.
