Among the highest rated musicals of all-time in terms of critical acclaim and fan appreciation is South Pacific. The musical first debuted in 1949 and was written by Rodgers and Hammerstein. The story is about an army outpost in the South Pacific and what happens there. The musical includes themes about love, acceptance, race issues, and more. Because it was quite novel at the time to include racial issues in a musical, it was a daring move, but one that paid off with the success of the musical. It even earned a Pulitzer Prize.
In addition to the musical, the show was also made into a movie, which had just as much acclaim and popularity as the musical. The musical was also done in many local theaters and schools around the country for decades. South Pacific returned as a Broadway revival in 2008 to packed houses and happy critics. Among the stars of the new version were Kelly O'Hara and Matthew Morrison, who is now best-known for his role as the glee club instructor on the television show Glee.
Audiences who watch South Pacific really get more than just a couple of hours of great music. They are really transported back to a time when things were quite different. Yet, by the end of the show, fans realize that unfortunately not too much has changed since the time of South Pacific, including many of the race relations issues.
