South Pacific

Bartlett Sher’s revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s 1949 World War II musical is faultlessly decorous. The staging is elegant; the cast acts with restraint and sings beautifully; the 30-piece orchestra swells with pride. Although some elements of the plot seem a bit corny, the score is a treasure, and the audience swoons. Kelli O'Hara has returned to play the love-struck Nellie Forbush, and Tony-winner Paulo Szot is her suitor Emile de Becque.—Adam Feldman
