ATG to bring Broadway’s award winning South Pacific into the West End?

During an interview with The Guardian newspaper on Friday,  Howard Panter (joint chief executive of Ambassador Theatre Group),  hinted that they would be transferring the Lincoln Center’s production of South Pacific into London’s West End.  

Set on a tropical island during World War II, South Pacific tells the story of two couples - US Navy nurse Nellie Forbush and French plantation owner Emile de Becque and Navy Airman Joe Cable and a young local native girl Liat - and how their happiness is threatened by the realities of war and their own prejudices.

It includes classics including  "Some Enchanted Evening," "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair," "Younger Than Springtime," "Bali Ha'i," "There is Nothin' Like A Dame," "This Nearly Was Mine" and "A Wonderful Guy."

The Broadway production has won seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical Revival, and ended its two-year run on 22nd August of this year.
