Did You Know?


The original Broadway production of "South Pacific" opened at the Majestic Theater on April 7, 1949, ran for 1925 performances starring Mary Martin as Nellie Forbush and Ezio Pinza as Emile de Becque, won the 1950 Tony Award for the Best Musical, Libretto and Score and won the Pulitzer Prize in Drama in 1950.

At one point, Nellie Forbush asks Luther Billis if he finished her laundry yet. Alec Baldwin was reading ahead in the script and couldn't find his line immediately. He had to go back three or four pages in the script to find his line. See more »

excellent concert version
7 April 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

On the face of it, this version of 'South Pacific' is oddly cast, with the Queen of Country, Reba McEntire as Nellie, and Alec Baldwin as Luther - but it works!

Brian Stokes Mitchell is perhaps the best Emile I've seen on stage or screen, and that's with some tough competition. McEntire is excellent despite the twang which comes through in all her songs; while Jason Daniely is a charming Cable. Lillias White is a fine (and rather younger than usual) Bloody Mary, while Alec Baldwin is a really fun Luther, even being game to wear the coconuts and grass skirts in the Honey Bun number.

Good orchestrations, nice support, and a great set of supporting singers make this concert in the beautiful setting of Carnegie Hall well worth stopping channel changes for.
