I love any story that stands for what is right & fair, and at the root that is what the musical South Pacific is all about. A story set during World War II takes us on a 3 hour ride about racism & prejudice, things very prevalent then, & most would argue still now to this day. An honest but entertaining show, South Pacific had me laughing, crying, happy, angry & sad all throughout the night. Oh and the singing! Wow! I literally got chills from the beautiful voices & harmonious sounds I witnessed all evening! I have never been to a Broadway musical & I’m so happy my first one was one with a message, the kind that you’ll think back on for years to come. Not to mention this musical has won numerous awards, including being the only musical production ever to have won all four Tony Awards for acting. If I haven’t convinced you that this is an amazing show, don’t take my word for it, see for yourself! The show will be in town until December 4.
