Broadway Musical

History :: Now Playing :: Schedule :: Reviews


For the first time in nearly sixty years this beloved award-winning musical is set to be revived. The Lincoln Center Theatre presents South Pacific at the Vivian Beamont Theatre. The production that was last seen on Broadway in 1949 is set to begin previews on March 1, 2008 with an official start date of April 4, 2008. The show is based on two short stories by James A. Michener from his book “Tales of the South Pacific” and deals with the lives of U.S. military men and nurses and the natives of the Polynesian Island they occupy during the war.

This production takes place on a tropical island during World War II and focuses on two couples whose happiness is threatened by the harshness of war and their own prejudices. U.S. Navy nurse Nellie falls in love with local plantation owner Emile while Lt. Joe Cable has fallen in love with the young local Liat. Both Nellie and Joe must resolve their own issues of racism before they can truly give of themselves. Can love overcome all or will these star-crossed lovers be consumed by life’s realities?

South Pacific is one of those musicals that comes to mind when you think of a full blown, traditional Broadway production. The score is vintage with such powerhouse songs like “Some Enchanted Evening,” “Bali Hai” and “Nothing Like A Dame”. The music and lyrics are by one of the most recognized theatrical teams in the Broadway industry; the legendary Rodgers and Hammerstein. Some of their other collaborations include Oklahoma, Carousel, The King and I and The Sound of Music. The original production won the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1950 and was the only musical to ever win all four Tony’s in the acting category. The musical also inspired a 1958 film of the same name.

As with any successful production the cast is a key element and this show is no exception. Leading off the ensemble are the talented Kelli O’Hara and Matthew Morrison. Broadway favorite O’Hara portrays Ensign Nellie Forbush and is best known for her Tony nominated performances in A Light in the Piazza and The Pajama Game. In the role of Lt. Joe Cable is Morrison who originated the role of Link Larkin in the long-running Hairspray. He has also had guest appearances on televisions Sex and the City and Hack. He was last seen in his Tony nominated role in the 2005 production of A Light in the Piazza.

This is a rare opportunity to see a gem of a production. South Pacific has not been on Broadway in almost six decades so it certainly will be something to see. It will be a fresh take on a classic show. If you are going be sure to get your tickets soon because production has been a long time coming and is sure to be a hot item of the season!
