With its hothouse of emotions, lush melodies and ever-timely commentary on racial tolerance, South Pacific steams up the stage as both a romantic musical and a deeply felt drama. As Americans stationed on an island paradise during World War II, a nurse and a GI both fall in love with island residents, but a culture clash threatens their relationships. Ultimately love wins out, but the dangers of war threaten their happy endings. The unforgettable Rodgers & Hammerstein score is filled with all-time favorites like "Some Enchanted Evening," "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair," "There is Nothing Like a Dame" and "Bali Ha'i." Both a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony winner, this Broadway classic comes to the Drury Lane Theatre in Oakbrook Terrace in an all-new production.
