PHOTO CALL: New South Pacific Is Afloat on Broadway

News   PHOTO CALL: New South Pacific Is Afloat on Broadway Lincoln Center Theater presents the first Broadway revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein's South Pacific, which is currently in previews at the Vivian Beaumont Theater.

Bartlett Sher directs and Christopher Gattelli choreographs the new production starring Kelli O'Hara (as Nellie Forbush) and Paulo Szot (as Emile de Becque). Matthew Morrison, Danny Burstein, Li Jun Li and Loretta Ables Sayre also appear in the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical by Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan.

"Set on a tropical island during World War II," according to LCT, "the musical tells the sweeping romantic story of two couples — US Navy nurse Nellie Forbush & French plantation owner Emile de Becque and Navy Airman Joe Cable & a young local native girl Liat — and how their happiness is threatened by the realities of the war and by their own prejudices."

Here is a glimpse at the production:
