September 27 - October 2, 2011
“Four stars! GORGEOUS! SOUTH PACIFIC DOESN’T JUST FLOAT; IT SOARS!” – Elysa Gardner, USA Today “I know we’re not supposed to expect perfection in this imperfect world, but I’m darned if I can find one serious flaw in this production.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“A SHOW YOU WILL REMEMBER FOREVER!” – Michael Sommers, Star-Ledger
“Simply Wonderful! Beguiling Theatrical Magic!” hails the New York Post for the breathtaking new production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s SOUTH PACIFIC. A stunning reinvention produced by Lincoln Center Theater, SOUTH PACIFIC swept the 2008 Tony® Awards, winning seven honors including Best Musical Revival and Best Director for Bartlett Sher. Set on a tropical island during World War II, the musical tells the sweeping romantic story of two couples and how their happiness is threatened by the realities of war and by their own prejudices. The beloved score’s songs include “Some Enchanted Evening,” “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair,” “This Nearly Was Mine” and “There is Nothin’ Like a Dame.” USA Today cheers, “????! Gorgeous! SOUTH PACIFIC doesn’t just float; it soars!”
This breathtaking new production of SOUTH PACIFIC is based on the 2008 Tony Award® winning Lincoln Center Theater production, directed by Bartlett Sher.
