Fresh, new version!!!
24 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I came across this version while flipping through channels and almost didn't stop as I have seen the play and movie versions so many times.

I am glad I did as this is an excellent fresh version of the well-worn South Pacific. Produced without sets or backdrops, the cast appeared on a bare stage with just the orchestra. This really placed the focus on the cast and their performances and they carried it off beautifully.

Reba was great as Nellie, her singing and acting were superb--she was very believable. Brian Stokes Mitchell's deep, rich baritone gave new life to the part of Emile. His voice is so much better suited to the part than those recorded previously (i.e. Enzo Pinza). His rendition of "This Nearly Was Mine" was so true you thought his heart was really broken by Nellie's rejection.

Alec Baldwin was a delightful surprise as Luther Billis. Ray Walston left big shoes to fill and Alec filled them to a "T". It was great to see big John Schuck as the commander on prime time TV again. The rest of the cast delivered inspired performances.

If you want a truly entertaining and thought provoking musical experience don't miss this new version of South Pacific!
