Entertainment at its best! The wonderful musical score by Rogers & Hammerstein complements the well-cast performance. Although set during WWII, the issues of racism, prejudice and learned hatred are timeless. I especially enjoyed the theatre format - set in a circle, there was not a bad seat in the house. If you want to leave the theatre humming a catchy tune, and in a good mood - it's a must see!
2 weeks after experiencing the musical, I was able to watch the latest movie version. I was astounded at how much more vibrant, energetic & enthusiastic the play version was.
I heartily recommend this version of South Pacific. Its issues are timeless and brought to live by the superb cast and acting. The music is catchy even by today's standards. The theatre was excellent and seating great. We left the theatre in an exuberant mood.
When I hear the music, I see the broadway play in my mind's eye, NOT the movie version.
The show is what I expected for a revival of a traditional Broadway musical. The sets and costumes were elaborate and the music was classic and familiar.
