The Peninsula Symphony and San Francisco’s celebrated 42nd Street Moon theater company collaborate on one of the greatest Rodgers and Hammerstein hits of all time – South Pacific, brought to life in a grand symphonic and theatrical presentation. Hearing this captivating score in its richest symphonic form, starring a magnificent Broadway cast from 42nd Street Moon, is an experience not to be missed!
42nd Street Moon is one of the first of the now increasingly popular “musical revival companies” and has presented over 100 concert versions or intimately produced musicals since its founding in 1993. After Ian Marshall Fisher’s Discover the Lost Musicals series in London, 42nd Street Moon is the next oldest, worldwide, of these companies devoted to the preservation and performance of “lost” musical theater. We have presented the American premieres of lost musical scores such as Jerome Kern’s Three Sisters, which was written in 1934 but never heard in America until our 1995 season, 61 years later, then revived again with additional material in 2011. In other cases, we have given the public the first production of a musical since its original Broadway run, such as Rodgers and Hart’s 1926 musical Peggy-Ann.
42nd Street Moon believes that Broadway in its heyday was an extraordinarily vital artistic era. The songs that came out of this golden age are priceless and and an essential part of American culture. 42nd Street Moon’s mission is to preserve these seminal works, to produce them for the public in their original context, and to perform them with the confident and able interpretation of capably trained (and favorably compensated) actors.
