South Pacific is acutely relevant today. If there’s any doubt, director Scott Weinstein spells it out in a visionary update of the 1949 musical.
This musical, that has garnered ten Tony Awards and three Academy Awards, can now add this brilliant production to its lists of accomplishments.
— Broadway World
Under the direction of Scott Weinstein, [the cast] moves with passion and purpose, whether they’re hypnotically placing wicker chairs in the sand, maneuvering around a bamboo maze or soaking up the sun. Exotic as the set is, though, it’s not the star of this tropical triumph. Its transportive effect on the cast ensures that they are.

Every moving, funny and thoughtful moment of “South Pacific” [is realized] to its absolute fullest. It’s the most well-rounded and wide-reaching show to take the stage of the playhouse this season, if not the last five.
