South Pacific Concert Version 2005 Reba McIntire Brian Stokes Mitchell,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: South Pacific in Concert from Carnegie Hall (Audio CD)
Excellent - What a great idea to have Reba McIntire play Ensign Nellie Forbush. Nellie in the musical is from Little Rock, Arkansas. Reba is a great actress and it is nice to have Nellie's songs sung in the country style instead of legit style. I like the legit style in most broadway shows. Brian Stokes Mitchell is also great as Emille DeBecque and the audience gives him a standing ovation for a long time after he sings This Nearly Was Mine. Even though it is 'just' a concert version rather than fully staged, I was thoroughly into the story and I shed lots of tears. Conrad John Schuck as Captain Brackett is great, too.
