Kelli O’Hara, whose performance as Nellie Forbush earned her Tony Award and Drama Desk Award nominations, returns to the role in the revival of South Pacific currently playing on Broadway.
O’Hara left the performance to welcome her first child, Owen James, to the world.
Laura Osnes (Grease) who played the role during her absence, will step down at O’Hara’s return this evening.
