'Pacific' Praise

May 26, 1985

Dan Sullivan's review of "South Pacific" (May 18) is the crowning insult; an unfounded bitter attack.

This production is definitely not the "low-budget, flat-floor road show" Sullivan described. To say that this classic Rodgers & Hammerstein score "remains serviceable" is quite simply absurd. I think we can all agree that these songs will still be around long after Dan Sullivan is gone.

At last the CLO has given us a show to be proud of, and anyone who is interested in a lovely, rewarding evening at the theater should ignore Sullivan's pompous remarks and get to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion before July 6.
