Kelli O'Hara in South Pacific.


"The revival at Lincoln Center was an overwhelming experience. I sat with my brother in the first row as this huge orchestra began playing that amazing Richard Rodgers score. And then there's Kelli O'Hara, with that pure, powerful voice and this gutsy and courageous portrayal. She really reinvented that role. Not just on an emotional level but every acting choice was masterful. When she sang, there was such honesty in the way she approached those brilliantly crafted lyrics from Oscar Hammerstein. I just floated out of that theatre with a renewed belief in the art form of the musical."
