"Simply Wonderful! Beguiling Theatrical Magic!" hails the New York Post for Rodgers & Hammerstein's SOUTH PACIFIC. This breathtaking new production of SOUTH PACIFIC is based on the 2008 Tony® Award-winning Lincoln Center Theater production, directed by Bartlett Sher. Set on a tropical island during World War II, the musical tells the sweeping romantic story of two couples and how their happiness is threatened by the realities of war and by their own prejudices. The beloved score's songs include "Some Enchanted Evening," "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa my Hair," "This Nearly Was Mine" and "There is Nothin' Like A Dame." USA Today cheers, "4-stars! Gorgeous! SOUTH PACIFIC doesn't just float; itsoars!" Based on James Michener's Pulitzer Prize winning book Tales of the South Pacific, Rodgers & Hammerstein's SOUTH PACIFIC has music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and book by Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan.

In the role of Captain George Brackett, Robert John Biedermann, has been in diverse roles for thirty-three years; however, this one is close to his heart. As a Veteran Naval Officer of the Vietnam War, he considers Captain Brackett to be a Salute to his Father, a Captain in World War II, and all the Vets in the audience.
