This South Pacific recreates the unabashed, unquestioning romance that American theatergoers had with the American book musical in the mid-20th century...

An unbelievable experience,
Apr 16, 2008
reviewer: from Henderson, NV
I managed to wrangle two tickets for this magnificent production one evening last week. I can honestly say I have never enjoyed a Broadway musical more. The singing, the sets, the energy of the cast, and the rich score beautifully interpreted by the huge (by Broadway standards) orchestra, and the incredible voices of Paulo Szot and Kelli O'Hara all combined to make for an unforgettable evening. It was truly "Some enchanted evening," and I haven't stopped humming the tunes ever since...

I have seen a LOT of theatre, and prefer the heavy stuff, but knowing that Bartlett Sher directed this (HE DID AWAKE AND SING!) I took a chance, saw a preview, had the best seat in the Center and cried all the way through. I even got a letter to the editor published in the New York Times as a result of this musical (inspired by an article by Frank Rich). WHATEVER YOU DO IN YOUR LIFE, DON"T MISS THIS! THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SHOW I HAVE EVER WITNESSED! ever, and that includes Royal Shakespeare Co, Kevin Spacey (sorry Kevin) and Vanessa Redgrave (sorry Ms. Redgrave!)

Six stars?,
Jun 08, 2008
reviewer: from Northern England
This is quite simply the best thing my wife and I have ever seen on a stage - or in a film, come to that. Fabulous cast, superb orchestra, perfect lighting and set. Kelli O'Hara almost steals the show, but it's a close thing - Danny Burstein regularly steals it back. Every one of the cast is top-notch, the singing is faultless, especially Paulo Szot. We were on a short holiday to New York from England and would have gone back the next night to see the show again there'd been a ticket! Thanks to all concerned.

An amalgam of history,
Jul 06, 2008
reviewer: from kinderhook ny usa
Such an important show- a wonderful amalgam of US,societal, cultural and broadway history. WWII,stage drama, a Rogers and Hammerstein gem with live music wrapped in a production that dares our society to face racial prejudice-this show is so complete a masterpiece that the viewer is humbled in it's presence. I tried to pretend I was seeing the original production and experiencing the score de novo. The show in this theater is at once intimate and a grand production of a broadway classic.

reviewer: from Texas
I saw this show last Thursday evening with my mother and father on a trip to NYC. It was exceptional and one of the best shows we saw while we were in the city. The only down side was that Kelli O'Hara was not in the cast that night and her understudy took her place. While she was very good, I only wish we had had the original. Paulo Szot was fantastic and his voice magnificent! He was worth the price we paid for our tickets to the sold out show. I encourage anyone that is looking for a show to attend that this is the one!
