"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.

"Wonderful evening of entertainment"

This is a play depicting the history of the Hawaiian people and their origins and voyage from Polynesia. It is told in costume, dance and song. The music and Hawaiian language is beautiful, and the evening reminded me of The best of broadway without the glitz. This tugged at your heart and made you feel good. They received a well deserved standing ovation

"Not a luau show"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed March 15, 2017 NEW
We wanted something different from the typical luau show, especially since we didn't want to deal with the luau buffet food. This show has no resemblance to a luau show at all so if you don't care to hear ukes it see hula and fire dancers this may be just right for you. The performers are talented and the production very professional. There are some violent loud scenes that may frighten young children, although our 3 year old was surprisingly ok with it. All of us enjoyed the show for the price we paid - about $100 for 4 adults 'platinum' seating since we got two free tickets and two at half price. I would have been very unhappy to have paid full price for this show though.

We ended up with free tickets (thanks, Expedia concierge, PJ!), and thoroughly enjoyed this break from the sunshine. The show is a mix of acrobatics, dance and puppeteering with great music/percussion. We enjoyed the show but could have used more narration or written material to help tell the story. Some very young children may be frightened by this show...(loud drumming, volcano scene, etc.)

"Perfect for some"

Reviewed March 09, 2017 NEW
Not sure I think it's worth the 89.00 tickets, performance lasted about 80 minutes. Some moments were great some were slow. Not a show for young children several were at this performance and cried during the show. If you want to go don't spend the money for the most expensive tickets.
