One of the biggest musical hits in the history of Broadway, South Pacific made Rodgers and Hammerstein two of the most famous names in theatre. The original Broadway production received ten Tony Awards, and a 2008 revival garnered seven. You will love hits such as "There Is Nothin' Like A Dame" and "A Wonderful Guy," so find South Pacific tickets now!
This show is based on Tales of the South Pacific, a book written by James A. Michener in 1947. The musical made its stage debut in 1949 at the Majestic Theatre in New York City. The show became one of the most successful Broadway musicals of the 1950s, and now South Pacific is one of the hottest events in the US.
On a tropical island, the South Pacific plot revolves around two couples. Ensign Nellie Forbush, Emile de Becque, Lieutenant Joseph Cable and Liat are living on a South Pacific island during World War II. Nellie, a nurse from Arkansas, and Cable, a young Marine, are both Americans who were raised with racial prejudices that they never questioned - until they fall in love with people from other races.
As the war continues, Emile and Cable embark on a dangerous mission that sends them deep behind enemy lines, and they may never return home alive. Get your South Pacific tickets today, and prepare for a great theater experience.
