Why See South Pacific?

South Pacific is on tour and hits the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, PA, Closed November 28, 2010

South Pacific follows the lives of a group of U.S. military men, nurses and the residents of the Polynesian island they occupy during World War II. Nurse Nellie Forbush is 'In Love With a Wonderful Guy', a French planter with small children.

Clean-cut Lt. Cable has fallen hard for Bloody Mary's daughter Liat. And the seabees, sailors and marines will tell you that there is 'Nothing Like a Dame'. The show's gorgeous score also includes 'Cockeyed Optimist', 'I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair', 'Some Enchanted Evening', 'Younger Than Springtime', 'Honey Bun' and 'This Nearly Was Mine'.
