Danny Burstein wowed audiences nightly as the original "Aldolpho" in THE DROWSY CHAPERONE, and can now be seen every night in SOUTH PACIFIC at Lincoln Center, playing "Luther Billis." Danny was nominated for a Tony for this role -- he is an audience favorite every night. If you are in the NYC area, put this on your list! It's fantastic -- I have seen three different actors playing the part of the Frenchman, Emile DeBecque -- Paulo Szot (the original, won the Tony), William Michals (his understudy -- have seen him three times -- magnificent), and David Pittsinger (takes over the part when Paulo has opera engagements -- he, too, is spectacular in the role). You just can't miss with this show. South Pacific at Lincoln CenterAnd if you want to have dinner as part of your night out, the nearby restaurant Telepan on West 69th Street is the best place to dine. When it opened in 2007 it was voted "Best New Restaurant in NYC" by Zagat. Reservations are a must. The kitchen is open til 10:30 on Tuesdays (South Pacific has a 7:00 PM curtain on Tuesday -- show is over at 10 PM). Regular performances are 8:00 PM -- for all evening performances you can eat BEFORE the show, but on Friday and Saturday the kitchen is open til 11:30, so on Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday you can also eat after the performance. There's also brunch on weekends.Telepan and South Pacific -- as perfect as a night out in New York City can get.
