Music by Richard Rodgers Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Book by Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan
Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Tales of the South Pacific by James Michener
Deeply evocative of a special place and time, this enduring classic premiered in 1949 on Broadway and won 10 Tony Awards including Best Musical. The 2008 Broadway revival won seven Tonys. Its parallel love stories, themes of military camaraderie, and unshrinking exploration of racial prejudice make it timeless.
Features the beloved songs “Bali Ha’i,” “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair,” “Some Enchanted Evening,” “There Is Nothin’ Like a Dame,” “Younger Than Springtime,” and “I’m in Love with a Wonderful Guy.”
* Performed on the Pull-Tight stage in 1996
