The magnificent revival of South Pacific that so moved me back in April 2008 is closing this Sunday at the Vivian Beaumont, but Live From Lincoln Center is giving us a last (or a first) look 8pm EST tonight on PBS. Matthew Morrison, who played Cable, has decamped to Glee and TV stardom but its incomparable leads, Kelli O'Hara and Paulo Szot (pictured), have returned to see it through to the end. I'm not sure how it'll play on the small screen but Light in the Piazza, also with O'Hara, turned out well, and I'm chancing my highest recommendation on this. Watch it, DVR it, tape it--just don't miss it.
