About This Gallery

Kelli O'Hara is back in South Pacific, and all's right with Broadway! Less than four months after the birth of her son, Owen James Naughton, the popular star returned to the stage of the Vivian Beaumont Theatre on October 13  to play Ensign Nellie Forbush in the Tony-winning Broadway revival. Looking svelte and gorgeous, O'Hara was reunited with co-stars Paulo Szot and Danny Burstein and enjoyed a surprise visit from show alum and Glee star Matthew Morrison, who's back at Lincoln Center Theater working with South Pacific director Bartlett Sher on developing a musical version of Pedro Almodovar’s Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. Broadway.com captured all the joy of O’Hara’s return, including a peek at her favorite dressing room guest: her precious baby boy!
