Barbican hosts award-winning Broadway production

Date Posted: 10/03/2011

The Barbican will host the European premiere of the Lincoln Center Theater’s award-winning production of South Pacific.

A re-invention of the classic Rogers and Hammerstein musical, South Pacific won seven Tony Awards in 2008, with a two year run on Broadway. Featuring a cast of 40 and an orchestra of 25, the score includes memorable numbers such as Some Enchanted Evening, I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair and There is Nothin’ Like a Dame.

Set on a tropical island during World War Two, South Pacific is the sweeping romantic story of two couples, threatened by the realities of war and by their own prejudices.

Running from the 15th August to 1st October, tickets are now on sale.
