Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize! Rodgers & Hammerstein's American classic, South Pacific, weaves together tales of romance, duty and valor to bring you a hilarious, heartbreaking, and thought-provoking Broadway musical. Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with Emile, a French plantation owner. At the same time, U.S. Lieutenant Cable falls for a beautiful island native named Liat. On this island of paradise, can true love survive cultural prejudices and the threat of war? The thrilling score includes "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair," "Some Enchanted Evening," "There Is Nothing Like a Dame," "Younger Than Springtime" and "I'm in Love with a Wonderful Guy."
