Whether he is ice diving among leopard seals in Antarctica, covering hundreds of miles of terrain in -40F temperatures, or mastering aerial shots from his ultralight plane, Paul has specialized in photographing polar regions since 1995. He has worked for National Geographic for 15 years producing 15 features but is also shared in hundreds of other publications around the world. We warmly welcome to our world stage one of the most prestigious photojournalists of all times, Paul Nicklen.

More About Paul's Work

“They say I am a street photographer for the underwater world. I get dangerous animals close, personal, and intimate.”—Paul Nicklen

As a photojournalist working in some of the world’s most remote environments, Paul Nicklen faces incredible hardships and danger in pursuit of powerful, close-up images of iconic wildlife. His early years on Canada’s Baffin Island, spent growing up alongside the Inuit, taught Nicklen an intense love of nature, an understanding of harsh, icy ecosystems, and survival skills essential to his work.

Nicklen’s book Polar Obsession, a retrospective of his photos from the Arctic and Antarctic, captured the imagination of the public and garnered four BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards. His National Geographic story on Emperor Penguins showcased his wry sense of humor, and the work won 1st place for Nature Stories in the 2012 World Press photo contest.

Broadway's Anything Goes sails into the Niswonger on February 15th with nightclub singer Reno Sweeney en route from New York to England. Her pal Billy Crocker has stowed away to be near his love, Hope Harcourt, but the problem is Hope is engaged to the wealthy Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Joining this love triangle on board the luxury liner are Public Enemy #13, Moonface Martin and his sidekick-in-crime Erma. With the help of some elaborate disguises, tap-dancing sailors and good old-fashioned blackmail, Reno and Martin join forces to help Billy in his quest to win Hope’s heart. Bring the whole family out for some musical fun and comedy in this fast-paced, farcical show that goes overboard with rivoting Broadway vocals and dance.
