Post The only problem I have with South Pacific
I think South Pacific is a great show, but it has way too many reprises of the songs. A lot of them aren't really necessary, and they make the show too long. Do you think R&H would give directors permission to cut some of the reprises if they asked?

I think so. I've seen productions of King and I that cut the reprises of A Puzzlement and Hello Young Lovers.

Ever since seeing it realized so beautifully in the 1958 film, I can't imagine a production without the reprises of "Bali Hai".

Billis' reprise is in the 'Road Show' version.
