The Story

The landmark musical’s first Broadway revival ever! The curtain rang down on Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific in 1954 after five years of extraordinary acclaim and countless awards including nine Tonys and a Pulitzer. Considered by many the finest musical ever written, the songs include “Some Enchanted Evening,” “Younger than Springtime,” “Bali Ha’ i,” “Nothing like a Dame” and “A Wonderful Guy.” Bartlett Sher directs the new production with two-time Tony nominee Kelli O’Hara as Nellie Forbush and acclaimed Brazilian baritone Paulo Szot in his Broadway debut as Emile De Becque.
