"We're thrilled to have the creative team for last year's glorious The King & I return for another Rodgers & Hammerstein classic," said Muny executive producer Mike Isaacson in an earlier statement. "Last year, the Muny audience fell in love with Laura Michelle, and we're thrilled she's returning. I'm confident they'll feel the same for Ben, Loretta, Josh and Sumie. This is an extraordinary cast for this landmark musical."
South Pacific features a score by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II and a book by Hammerstein and Joshua Logan. "The masterful and lyrical love story between Army nurse Nellie Forbush and the mysterious French planter, Emile de Becque" won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
The Muny production features scenic design by Michael Schweikardt, sound design by Jason Krueger, lighting design by John Lasiter, video design by Nathan Scheuer and costume design by Tracy Christensen. Brad Haak serves as the musical director, and the production stage manager is Bonnie Panson.
