The best.

Comments about PBS Great Performances: South Pacific in Concert from Carnegie Hall DVD:

This is still one of my favorite versions of South Pacific. Evidently people don't know what a concert version is! Reba, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Alec Baldwin (who was a wonderful as Billis)were a terrific combination. I rewatch it all the time.

What a grand night for singing!

Comments about PBS Great Performances: South Pacific in Concert from Carnegie Hall DVD:

An interesting and welcomed stripped-to-the-bare-essentials counterpoint to the overblown, but still likeable 1958 film version. Reba McEntire makes for a much more delightful Arkansas hick than Mitzi Gaynor (and I mean that in a good way). Brian Stokes Mitchell is an excellent-plus Old Hand and does not need a voice stand-in as Rossano Brazzi did. For all practical purposes, Alec Baldwin showed up, but he seemed like he wanted to be someplace else. No competition for Ray Walston as Luther Billis. Otherwise, I would have given the concert 5 stars. Perfectly satisfied with my choice and I expect many more enchanted evenings in the future. Brava and Bravo!

It's a concert version, hon

To my friends in Texas:

This is a concert version, and it's a great one. If you want to see a "full" production, you might try the Mitzi Gaynor version.

Really dissapointed

By The Perrys

Comments about PBS Great Performances: South Pacific in Concert from Carnegie Hall DVD:

We were really dissapointed after viewing this DVD especialy because we are fans of Reba. This DVD is a rehearsal with actors/singers READING!!! their texts ! They are all talented but we were expecting to see that great musical with the performers showing some feelings instead of reading a text even for the songs ! we have since returned that DVD back to PBS.[...] we cannot recommend buying from PBS. Sorry...

love this DVD. As a side now, please show more masterpiece classics and mysteries on sunday at 9. Some of the Christie series could have been shown in 2008. There are too few masterpiece series
