One of the greatest musicals of all time, South Pacific tickets are available with Applause Theatre Service

I am here to talk about my favorite musical of the year and quite possibly of all time, "South Pacific". It’s at least in my top 3 shows. Winner of 7 Tony Awards this year including Best Revival of a Musical.
The revival of the 1949 musical South Pacific opens with a full 30-piece orchestra and has an amazing cast of characters, expertly directed by Bartlett Sher. Led notably by the dark and heroic Emile DeBecque of Tony-winning Best Actor in a musical and opera mainstay Paulo Szot(below) and Nellie Forbush played by the beautiful and the incredibly talented Kelli O'Hara, this is a wide-spanning musical—with jaw-dropping sets by Tony-winner Michael Yeargan evoking the whole strange and beautiful world of the South Pacific. The vast gallery of robust characters which flesh out Rodger's & Hammerstein's rich tapestry of Broadway music include the indispensable wise-guy sailor Luther Billis, played by Danny Burstein and the lovestruck Joe Cable acted by Matthew Morrison. Deserving another notable mention is the find of the year Loretta Ables Sayre as "Bloody Mary" whose performance transcends stock comedy by showing her opportunistic side doubled with her maternal tenacity for her daughter's future. This brilliant music of this long-awaited revival ranges in emotion-while dealing with the gravity of war, from boredom to the inevitable doom of battle on coral beaches, from broad comedy to hapless yearning and ultimately the triumph of impossible love...After seeing this amazing musical, I feel I've arrived at a glimpse of Broadway's famed "Golden Years", a place where beautiful music warms your soul in its bright shining sun. Run to see this important piece of musical history. It is a must see.
