Broadway Musicals: South Pacific

  • Aarondale Community 6929 Matthew Pl Springfield, VA 22151 (map)

South Pacific premiered on Broadway in 1949 and was an immediate success with the public. This is notable, as its underlying theme was a sensitive treatment of racial prejudice. This musical does so by portraying the life and loves of U.S. Navy personnel during WWII who are stationed in a tropical paradise. In addition to listening to several popular songs from this work, we also examine the dark side of social prejudice during and before the Civil Rights movement.
