|SOUTH PACIFIC - November 1973
Adapted from "Tales of the South Pacific" by James A. Michener.
South Pacific chronicles two love affairs. The first involves Lt. Joe Cable and a young Polynesian girl. The second revolves around Nellie Forbush, a Navy nurse from Little Rock, and Emile de Becque, a French planter with whom she falls in love one enchanted evening. Rodgers and Hammerstein tied the two stories together by having Cable and de Becque go on a dangerous mission behind Japanese lines from which only one of them returns.
Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II.
South Pacific opened on Broadway on April 7th 1949 and ran for 1,925 performances.
