With its hot-house emotions and lush melodies, this Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning musical has melted the hearts of audiences for over 60 years. At once a romantic musical and a deeply felt drama, South Pacific tells the story of Americans stationed in an unfamiliar culture in wartime, a situation as relevant today as when it first thrilled audiences in 1949. Timeless themes such as love, prejudice, happiness and cultural differences are tackled with the help of an immortal score, filled with all-time favorites like "Some Enchanted Evening," "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair" and "Bali Ha'i."

After so many years of wanting to see Brian's one man show, I finally did. I found it to be very insightful and entertaining. I can see why his book is now in colleges and universities across America. I would recommend this show to anyone who has not yet seen i,t as it has taken a long time to get it to San Jose. The venue is great, not a bad seat in the place.

In addition to the Marsh in San Francisco and Berkeley, the show was also a hit with Goldstar members in its run at the American Conservatory Theater.
“Copeland is a winning, magnetic performer who knows how to work an audience … a beautiful mix of wry humor and heartbreak, indignation and inspiration, a singular story of extreme isolation that speaks to anyone who’s ever felt out of place.” —San Francisco Chronicle
“Copeland’s ability to captivate an audience rivals many a celebrated solo predecessor from Ruth Draper to Spalding Gray to Whoopi Goldberg … Copeland is a genuine discovery.” —Los Angeles Times
“Engaging … Copeland knows how to spin a dramatic yarn.” —The New York Times
