In the world of theater, many teams have worked on musicals over the years. None, though, is quite as famous as Richard
Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. Rodgers and Hammerstein are behind some of the best musicals of their time, like Oklahoma!,
Carousel, The King and I and The Sound of Music. Among their best creations is the musical South Pacific.
South Pacific was first staged in the late 1940s and revolves around a U.S. Navy nurse stationed in the South Pacific during
World War II. The nurse begins to fall in love with a French plantation owner, but then her prejudices began to get in the
way of her romance. When it was released, South Pacific was a controversial theater
show because of its themes of racial equality, and it is still poignant today.
One of the reasons that South Pacific has been able to maintain the status of a top show over the years is because of the
amazing score. The score of South Pacific includes such favorites as "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair," "I'm In
Love with a Wonderful Guy," "Happy Talk" and "You've Got to Be Carefully Taught." Here them all by seeing the show in Washington,
