The masterful and lyrical love story between Army nurse Nellie Forbush and the mysterious French planter, Emile de Becque, won the Pulitzer Prize for drama and its most recent revival swept the 2008 Tony Awards.
The Muny production features scenic design by Michael Schweikardt, sound design by Jason Krueger, lighting design by John Lasiter, video design by Nathan Scheuer, and costume design by Tracy Christensen. Brad Haak serves as the musical director, and the production stage manager is Bonnie Panson.
