There are some things in life you just cant wash right out of your hair, and one of those is the quintessential Broadway musical South Pacific
, which, along with such shows as Oklahoma!
and West Side Story
, pretty much writes the book on what it takes to succeed on the Great White Way. Nostalgia for this kind of staging will be in full force when a new touring production of the worlds greatest chestnut of World War II-driven song-and-dance plays the Buell Theatre, and in this case, its fully warranted: The Tony Award-sweeping revival, replete with knockout renditions of Im Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair, Bali Hai and There Is Nothin Like a Dame, is touted to be a knockout.
will be at the Buell, located in the Denver Performing Arts Complex, daily except Mondays through August 1. Ticket prices range from $15 to $125; for reservations and information, visit www.denvercenter.org
