Although well known for its extraordinary score — the songs include “Some Enchanted Evening,” “Younger Than Springtime,” “Bali Ha’i,” “There Is Nothin’ Like A Dame” — SOUTH PACIFIC is also a deeply felt drama. Its portrayal of Americans stationed in an alien culture in wartime is as relevant today as when it first thrilled audiences in 1949.
There is Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, who falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile. Their romance founders when Nellie discovers details from his past. Meanwhile, Lt. Joe Cable finds himself in a passionate affair with Liat, an innocent Polynesian girl.
And then there’s Liat’s mother, Bloody Mary … in this case Loretta Ables Sayre, reprising her Tony® nominated role. The New Yorker called her “brilliant”; Bloomberg Reviews called her Bloody Mary, “lustily acted and boldly sung” and New York Daily News called her, “the find of the season, completely convincing and hilarious.”
Join us as we present Loretta Ables Sayre in SOUTH PACIFIC.
