I may have done the math wrong here. I finished the first hour and was shocked how far along I'd gotten. I glanced up again, having barely accomplished anything, and the second hour had passed. This piece needs some help. I like the composition okay, but it needs more structure. The ocean was meant to be more like a giant wheel that would be somewhat reminiscent of a pop up. I could have done that if I hadn't gotten so distracted with getting the oranges and blues to jive.
At least I still like the compostion. Nellie Flatbush is stationed as an army nurse on an island in the pacific and falls for a french man in exile. South Pacific deals with the issues of racism and cultural prejudices. Nellie finds eventually sees the light, but not everyone finds their way.
If you have a choice in the version to view, go for Reba McEntyre.
