As haunting and evocative as the island of Bali Ha'i itself, this masterful and deeply romantic love story between an Army nurse and a mysterious French planter won ten Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for drama. Set in an island paradise during World War II, South Pacific’s portrayal of Americans stationed in an alien culture in wartime is as relevant today as when it first thrilled audiences in 1949.
