South Pacific

This concluding chapter features a discussion of productions of South Pacific subsequent to the original Broadway run. Several of the productions, including a national tour starring Erin Dilly and Michael Nouri that was in rehearsal during the events of 9/11, reveal aspects of the show previously unobserved, and the latest revival, which Bartlett Sher directed for Lincoln Center and which is the first Broadway production since the original, is extremely relevant to current events. The chapter concludes with an assessment of South Pacific as a musical from its era and as an ongoing cultural document that continues to shed light on issues of race, gender, and foreign relations in postwar American culture.

Keywords:   South Pacific, Erin Dilly, Michael Nouri, Lincoln Center, Bartlett Sher, Broadway, postwar American culture
