Cockeyed Optimists

... at least, that's how everybody feels when you've got "Another Openin', Another Show" (with apologies to *Kate*) coming up.

Actors in the lead roles for *South Pacific* at the Civic, Sept. 29-Oct. 28 will be:
Brie Green as Nellie Forbush
Michael Muzatko as Emile LeBecque
Marianne McLaughlin as Bloody Mary
Jaylen Renz as Joe Cable
Jerry Sciarrio as Luther Billis

directed by Yvonne A.K. Johnson
musical direction by Carolyn Jess

Trivia: *South Pacific* is one of only six musicals to win the Pulitzer for drama.
And it's the only filmed version of a Rodgers and Hammerstein musical to leave all of the stage show's songs intact.
