"Brought me to tears"
July, 2016
How can a historical review in dance and song bring a pragmatic mainlander to tears? Through beautiful choreography, mesmerizing songs and aerial beauty. Presented with outstanding costumes and simple effects with fabric, percussion and props this production transported me into the lives of early Maui residents. I lived their struggles and emotions as vivid colors filled the stage and extended out into the audience. A must see. One of the highlights of my trip.
Tip: Every seat is a good seat in this small theatre. Be on time, you don't want to miss a moment.

My family of four wanted to experience Hawaiian culture and my curiosity was peaked by a review of this show. We were all delighted with this AMAZING show. The dancing, the staging, the passion presented by the performers was breathtaking. The story included tales of delight, humor and tragedy. There were many elements of surprise and we all were completely immersed in the story. Highly recommend this gem.

It was tedious... Or to be nice, it was not what I was looking for. Modern interpretive dance and interpretation of the history of Hawaii. Complete with a character of a pig that acts rudely... Don't go if you want authentic Hawaiian culture, or good Hawaiian hula, or singing,,,,,

If you enjoy culture and interpretive dance, this is a good show to see. Knowing a little about the history of Hawaii helps the viewer understand the different parts of the show. The three musicians and the singers in the cast were amazing. If you really want to insure having tickets, order them ahead of your trip especially during summer and winter months, the two highest tourist seasons.
