South Pacific, one critic noted, "has a way of making grown men cry." For more than 60 years, the hot-house emotions and lush melodies of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning musical have melted the hearts of men and women alike. At once a romantic musical and a deeply felt drama, South Pacific tells the story of Americans stationed in an unfamiliar culture in wartime, a situation as relevant today as when it first thrilled audiences in 1949. Timeless themes such as love, prejudice, happiness and cultural differences are tackled with the help of an immortal score, filled with all-time favorites like "Some Enchanted Evening," "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair" and "Bali Ha'i." John Haine directs this treasured musical for Davis Musical Theatre Company. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Directed and choreographed by Jan Isaacson, with musical direction by Chris Congdon, Bye Bye Birdie is a ripped-from-the-headlines satire from the 1950s. When an over-the-top rocker is drafted, his publicity agents concoct a way to capitalize on the loss of their biggest star, by creating a press frenzy around a sheltered Midwest teen that will receive the idol’s last kiss before serving his country. The show is filled with unforgettable tunes from Charles Strouse and Lee Adams, such as "Put On a Happy Face," One Boy" and "A Lot Of Living To Do."
