With its hot-house emotions and lush melodies, this Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning musical has melted the hearts of audiences for over 60 years. 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."

Terrific first act, especially the dancing, but all parts were well executed. Unfortunately, the plot (though not the staging or costumes) fizzles badly early in the second act and the balance of the songs are just ornamental. Since the pieces are highly stylized, and therefore predicable, and not really exquisite musically -- like, for example, opera -- it really helps to have a feasible plot to keep our attention. Otherwise, we are kind of waiting for it to end...speaking of which, great finale.

Crazy for You is the story of Bobby Child, a well-to-do 1930’s playboy, whose dream in life is to dance. This high energy comedy includes mistaken identity, plot twists, and fabulous dance numbers. A three time Tony Award winner, the N.Y. Times critic Frank Rich hailed Crazy for You for “some of the greatest songs ever written” including “I Got Rhythm,” “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” “Nice Work if You Can Get it,” “Embraceable You,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
