You're In For Some Enchanted Evening on Broadway By Seeing "South Pacific"

With a round of praise from the toughest of Broadway critics and a show that I knew would become a mega hit is easily one of my all time favorite musicals! The new revival of South Pacific is so enchanted and beautifully staged by director Bartlett Sher and the full-scale production at Lincoln Center Theatre has earned every accolade they were given, winner of seven 2008 Tony Awards . While in retrospect, given the considerable praise and excitement about this revival of Pacific, it seems like this revival was a sure thing, or not.

Of course, nothing could be further than the truth, and the fact that Lincoln Center was ready to again roll the dice in a large way, speaks to its ability to accomplish and risk things that commercial producers avoid. It is unlikely that a full orchestra and cast of 40 would be desirable for a commercial producer. Last season, Lincoln Center dared big on Tom Stoppard's Coast of Utopia. That paid off…for the most part. It won Tony's. This South Pacific Broadway revival also ran away with a bunch of awards as well. The real accomplishment is partly in the fact that it was produced on Broadway at all. The age, cast size, and physical scale of South Pacific make this musical a challenge. Once again, Lincoln Center has risen to the challenge, and not doubt the rewards will be great as well.
