My Thoughts On South Pacific

Who would have thought that a fifty year old show would not only be one of Broadway's most popular shows but still continue to sell at almost full capacity almost two years later. South Pacific first premiered on Broadway in 1949 and here we are in 2009 and it is still one of Broadway's biggest success stories. I had the great fortune of seeing the show prior to it's opening in March 2008 and was so surprised at how current and relevant the show remains. Most shows from the "Golden Age of Broadway" tend to feel some what dated and a little hokey if you know what I mean.

That is not the case with South Pacific. Not only is it one of the most well produced shows on Broadway but it is what Broadway musicals are all about. A great story that touches your heart. A score that even days later you are still humming as you walk down the street. And a cast of characters that help make your Broadway experience one that you will cherish for years to come. Shows like South Pacific don't come around every day. See it now before it is too late.
