Awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and 10 Tonys, SOUTH PACIFIC is considered one of the greatest musicals of all time. Based on James Michener’s Tales of the South Pacific, it is set on a tropical island during World War II and tells the sweeping romantic story of two couples and how their happiness is threatened by the realities of war and by their own prejudices. The songs, by now deeply engrained in American culture, include the romantic “Some Enchanted Evening” and “Younger than Springtime,” the spirited “There is Nothing Like a Dame,” the haunting “Bali Ha’i,” and the reflective “This Nearly Was Mine.”
