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

Ben Brantley, New York Times

Closed 22 Aug 2010

Lincoln Center Theater presents the iconic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, which is returning to the New York scene in its first-ever Broadway revival.

South Pacific concerns the lives of U.S. military men, nurses and the residents of the Polynesian island they occupy during World War II. Nurse Nellie Forbush is "In Love With a Wonderful Guy," a French planter with small children.

Clean-cut Lt. Cable has fallen hard for Bloody Mary's daughter Liat. And the seabees, sailors and marines will tell you that there is "Nothing Like a Dame." The show's gorgeous score also includes "Cockeyed Optimist," "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair," "Some Enchanted Evening," "Younger Than Springtime," "Honey Bun" and "This Nearly Was Mine."
