South Pacific, Lincoln Center revival


"A gorgeous, utterly revelatory revival. I was astonished at the deep, emotional power of the musical. Director Bartlett Sher is brilliant. So many wonderful memories of the beautiful cast, it was when Paolo Szot sang 'This Nearly Was Mine' that I lost it. Lost it. The heartache of Emile was one of the most tangible things I've ever felt in the theatre."
