Hot Date: Love and War in the South Pacific

photo by Bruce Bennett

AUGUST 12 TO SEPTEMBER 5 Set during the turmoil of World War II, two parallel love stories comprise the Tony Award–winning Rodgers & Hammerstein musical South Pacific. Amidst a wartime of atmosphere of racial prejudice, nurse Nellie Forbush struggles with her feelings for plantation owner Emile de Becque, while Joe Cable, an American marine Lieutenant, finds himself falling for Liat, the daughter of the local grass-skirt seller. Internationally renowned standards such as “Some Enchanted Evening” and “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair,” provide a tuneful score. Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, Tuesday to Saturday 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday 2 p.m., $28 to $200; call 416-644-3665 or visit here to reserve.
