South Pacific Broadway tickets are on sale now with Bartlett Sher directing this new production. This would be the musical’s first Broadway revival. This landmark musical by Rodgers and Hammerstein had also enchanted people, way back in 1949, when it was first played. After five years of extraordinary success, the curtains finally came down in 1954. By then the musical had won countless awards, including nine Tony Awards and a Pulitzer.

Adaptation From A Great Book

South Pacific, the musical is an adaptation of James A. Michener’s Tales of the South Pacific. James A. Michener won a Pulitzer award for this book. Joshua Logan read the book and was keen to adapt the story to the stage. Helping him in this task were Leland Howard, Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein II. Joshua Logan directed the musical. Richard Rogers composed the music, and Hammerstein II wrote the lyrics.

The first South Pacific Broadway tickets were sold in 1949, the year when South Pacific made its stage debut at the Majestic Theater in New York City.

Nellie Forbush is a nurse from Arkansas and is stationed on a South Pacific Island during the World War II. Lt. Joseph Cable has been sent to the South Pacific Island on a top secret mission.
