In the fall of 2010, Loretta completed a two-and-a-half years run as Bloody Mary in the Lincoln Center Theater (LCT) revival of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific. It was the first revival of South Pacific on Broadway since it premiered in 1949 and the longest running revival of an R&H musical.

She received a Tony Award nomination for Best Featured Actress and a Theatre World Award for her Broadway and NYC debuts in the role and performed Bali Hai on the nationally broadcast 2008 Tony Awards Preview Concert. The run concluded with a live, nationally-televised PBS production of “Live From Lincoln Center; South Pacific.”

Loretta made her London and U.K. debut in late summer 2011 in South Pacific at the Barbican Theatre and appeared in the production’s U.K. tour in cities across England, Scotland and Wales.

The official Broadway cast recording of LCT’s revival of South Pacific was nominated for a Grammy Award. The CD, featuring her performances of “Bali Hai” and “Happy Talk,” is available on Sony Classics. She also is interviewed in the documentary, “Passion, Prejudice and South Pacific; Creating an American Masterpiece” on the 50th anniversary Blu-ray edition of the 1959 movie South Pacific.

In addition to her work on Broadway, Loretta is well-known in Hawaii for her performances in theater, concerts, TV series, commercials and voiceover work.

She released her first CD, “Dreamy,” in December 2001 to public and critical acclaim and was nominated for a Nā Hoku Hanohano Award and received national airplay.

Her Hawaii theater credits include starring as Ma “Pua” Lusa in the Diamond Head Theater musical production of “You Somebody” in 2002 and the 2007 revival and landing the lead role of “Effie White” in the 1989 production of the musical “Dreamgirls,” at the Hawaii Theater.
