This musical has it all, including one of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s most popular show tunes, “Some Enchanted Evening.” Mitzi Gaynor and Rossano Brazzi are star-crossed lovers on the Solomon Islands - she’s from Little Rock, Arkansas, and he’s an expatriate Frenchman - threatened by the growing conflict with the Japanese during WWII.
