One of the greatest musicals of all time!
Winner of 10 Tony Awards including Best Musical, South Pacific is set on an idyllic South Pacific island during WWII. Rodgers and Hammerstein intertwine the themes of romance, duty and prejudice to create a story that is at once hilarious, heartbreaking and thought-provoking. Featuring an extraordinary score — including “Some Enchanted Evening”, “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair”, “Bali Ha’i”, “There Is Nothin’ Like a Dame” and “You’ve Got to Be Carefully Taught” — South Pacific is an unparalleled and timely classic.
“Above all, what impresses about South Pacific is how deeply, fallible and poignantly human every character seems…a tenderly beautiful idyll of genuine people inexplicably tossed together in a strange corner of the world.”
—The New York Times
