South Pacific at Lincoln Center

Although I wasn't around in 1954 when South Pacific first appeared on Broadway, I can tell you that the first revival of South Pacific was an instant hit from the day it began playing at New York's Vivian Beaumont Theater in Lincoln Center. South Pacific started previews on March 1, 2008 then proceeded to win seven 2008 Tony Awards for excellence in the Broadway Theater. It was our company's biggest ticket seller in 2008 and still sells extremely well.

South Pacific has a wonderful score by the incomparable Rodgers and Hammerstein and was originally adapted from James Michner's famous novel "Tales of the South Pacific".

The current revival (the first one in over 50 years), currently stars Laura Osnes and Paulo Szot. Ms. Osnes was recently scene on Broadway in the popular revival of Grease and Mr. Szot has appeared in several New York City Opera productions. He was the original male lead playing Emile de Becque in this version of South Pacific, left the show for a short while then recently returned. He is a standout performer and Broadway entertainer in my book.

South Pacific tells the unique and interesting story of a U.S. Navy nurse (Ms. Osnes) that falls in love with a local plantation owner on an island in the South Pacific. The costumes, lighting and scenic design alone are worth the price of admission to see South Pacific. Some of the songs included in this amazing score are "Some Enchanted Evening", "Younger Than Springtime", "Nothing Like A Dame", "A Wonderful Guy" and many other memorable songs you'll be singing even after you leave the theater.

It's truly one of my personal favorites and if you want to see an old fashioned show that has all the elements of a great Broadway Show, then you might want to consider calling Applause Theater Service and making an inquiry to obtain tickets to the show.

Applause has been providing the excellent service Broadway theater-goers have come to know for nearly 22 years now. They love to talk about Broadway Shows and especially enjoy sending their customers to nice dining spots before the theater as an extra treat. They know the city very well and enjoy sharing the trade secrets about how to get the best seats for South Pacific as well as any other Broadway Shows you might be keen on seeing.

Remember to ask about their BFV ticket deals. BFV stands for Below Face Value prices which basically offers below cost prices on many shows that don't usually sell all their inventory.

Applause is a New York State licensed ticket agency (license #71AP1001029) and caters to the needs of consumers, travel agents, hotel concierge and corporations that entertain clients and reward employees using theater tickets. They love talking about Broadway Theater so give them a call when you have a few minutes to talk.

Good luck and enjoy South Pacific or the Broadway Show of your choosing.
