South Pacific

South Pacific Synopsis

South PacificThis epic musical romance centers on a group of American sailors and Navy nurses stationed in the South Pacific during World War II. Arkansas native Nellie Forbush befriends and quickly falls for Emile de Becque, a French expatriate and plantation owner, and Lt. Joe Cable finds himself in a passionate affair with Liat, the young daughter of Bloody Mary, the local grass-skirt peddler. As the war against Japan escalates, reality sets in for both Forbush and Cable, who struggle to reconcile their unconventional love affairs with their long-held prejudices and insecurities.

Now in its first Broadway revival, SOUTH PACIFIC won seven 2008 Tonys and has been playing to sold-out houses since the first preview in March 2008. The marvelous cast of 40, led by Laura Osnes and David Pittsinger, is directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher (The Light in the Piazza and Awake and Sing!)
