South Pacific Toronto Tickets

Revivals usually have a lot to live up to, especially when the original production was an absolute blockbuster. Yet South Pacific’s 2008 Broadway revival has packed quite a punch. South Pacific has recreated the mystique of the original 1949 musical by Oscar Hammerstein & Richard Rodgers, based itself on James A. Michener’s Pulitzer-winning 1947 novel Tales of the South Pacific.

The powerful musical introduces two couples, faltering due to their racial prejudices while threatened by the devastation of the raging WWII on a South Pacific island. US Navy nurse Nellie falls for a French plantation owner, Emile, who also secretly fathers two half-Polynesian children. Meanwhile, Lt Cable, out on a spy mission, has romantic exchanges with a local girl Liat, but cannot marry her due to his prejudices.
Bartlett Sher directed the most recent revival, with musical staging by Christopher Galetti & Joe Langworth. South Pacific employs music by Rodgers & lyrics by Hammerstein, who also contributes on the book with Joshua Logan. The revival premiered at Lincoln Center’s Vivian Beaumont Theater in April 2008.
