SOUTH PACIFIC Comes to Alt Stage, 3/10
Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize winning novel "Tales of the South Pacific" by James Michener, this epic musical romance centers on a group of American sailors and Navy nurses stationed in the South Pacific during World War II. Arkansas native Nellie Forbush befriends and quickly falls for Emile de Becque, a French expatriate and plantation owner, and Lt. Joe Cable finds himself in a passionate affair with Liat, the young daughter of Bloody Mary, the local grass-skirt peddler.
