Samantha Zoe Womack, who is currently known for playing the role of Ronnie Mitchell in EastEnders is to star in Lincoln Center Theater Production South Pacific. Samantha Womack will play Nellie opposite Paulo Szot in South Pacific, which will run at the Barbican theatre from 12 August 2011.
The breathtaking Lincoln Center Theater production which reinvented this classic musical, won 7 Tony Awards, sold out on Broadway for 2 years and is currently selling out across America, now premieres in the UK.
Set during World War II, South Pacific is the sweeping romantic story of two couples, threatened by the realities of war. Its portrayal of Americans stationed in an alien culture in wartime is as relevant today as when it first thrilled audiences.
Considered one of the finest musicals ever written, the score includes Some Enchanted Evening, I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair and There is Nothin’ Like a Dame.
With a cast of 40 and a live orchestra of 25, this international hit landmark production arrives at the Barbican for a strictly limited 7 week London season.
