The book was written by Joshua Logan, adapted from James Michener’s novel Tales of the South Pacific and is set in a US Naval base during the final part of World War II in the South Pacific islands. The musical is well known for its score of show standards, ranging from the powerful ‘Some Enchanted Evening’ to the whimsical ‘Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair’. The show has been revived on both Broadway and the West End, with successful recent productions touring both the US and UK.

Songs for a New World

0

Songs For a New World features music and lyrics by contemporary American composer Jason Robert Brown. It marked his first professional Off Broadway show and the original production was directed by Daisy Prince, daughter of Hal Prince the famous Producer and Director. The show is more of a song cycle/revue that brings together four singers each on the moment of decision. Although there is some form of overarching narrative, most of the songs stand alone outside of the show. The musical has been popular with fringe companies around the world.
