Good venue but could have used some air conditioning as many in our top row were fanning themselves.

Performance pace was slow as first intermission was at two hour mark...long night...heck the movie was shorter...ha!

The lieutenant was by far...continued

It was fun, they had one amazing singer that played the Lieutenant. The female lead was very good also. The rest of the cast, all I can say is that they tried. It was a fun night and I would try it again

Description

Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile. Nellie learns that the mother of his children was an island native and, unable to turn her back on the prejudices with which she was raised, refuses Emile’s proposal of marriage. Meanwhile, the strapping Lt. Joe Cable denies himself the fulfillment of a future with an innocent Tonkinese girl with whom he’s fallen in love out of the same fears that haunt Nellie. When Emile is recruited to accompany Joe on a dangerous mission that claims Joe’s life, Nellie realizes that life is too short not to seize her own chance for happiness, thus confronting and conquering her prejudices.

This deeply-felt drama remains as relevant today as it was in 1949, featuring such timeless favorites as “Some Enchanted Evening,” “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair,” “This Nearly Was Mine,” and “There is Nothin’ Like a Dame.”
