South Pacific in Concert: Sights and Sounds

Directed by the much-esteemed First Lady of Philippine Theater, Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo, the staging of the beloved 1949 musical was a success beyond measure. It was every bit worthy of the combined talent on and off stage.
South Pacific is a musical composed by Richard Rodgers with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. It was based from the 1947 Pulitzer Prize-winning book “Tales of the South Pacific” written by James A. Michener.
South Pacific in Concert is a breath of warm Pacific air that you will always bring with you as a treasured memory. It is a shame that we are only given two shows to view it.
For those who haven’t seen it, South Pacific in Concert is still showing on September 19, 2015 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater in Resorts World.
