Photo Flash: First Look at SOUTH PACIFIC at Triad Stage
Triad Stage, in partnership with UNC Greensboro, brings to life one of Broadway's most iconic musicals. The world is at war, and on an island in the South Pacific the U.S. has created a military stopover for young men on their way to the front lines of battle. But love is also in the air. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
Emotions run high as a Midwestern nurse and a young lieutenant each navigate the treacherous waters of unfamiliar cultures and new romances. Winner of the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize, Rodgers & Hammerstein's South Pacific will sweep you away with the delightful cast of characters and unforgettable songs like "Bali Ha'i", "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair," and "Younger Than Springtime."
