Friends who grew up in Maui highly recommended we catch this show.

It was incredible and held everyone's attention (two adults and two kids (10 & 12).

The facility is excellent and I doubt their is a "bad seat."

The sets were professionally done, fish puppets, and other effects outstanding.

The actors/performers were comfortable and interacted with the audience.

The essence of the story tells the story of the Hawaiian islands, agriculture, discovery by Western adventurers and the problems of that discovery. Intertwined with the history lesson is a positive story between two brothers/family of hope and redemption. I thought it was great!

It is a genuine Hawaiian experience professionally executed!

While Maui will call your name to engage in numerous outdoor activities... take the time to catch this show! It will enhance your overall visit!

This was a great show with lots of Hawaiian history being told in a theatrical way. It was very interesting and is a family event. There is not a bad seat in this theatre so save your money for a nice dinner and get the cheapest seat available.

Took my sister to see this show. My third time to see it. Her first. She felt very moved by the experience and really enjoyed it. Although she said she had no idea what was going on, she could tell there was so much emotional meaning to the story, the song, and the dance. If you want to know more about the story of Ulalena, perhaps read a bit of the history of Maui, and learn about the old Hawaiian beliefs before you go. The music is wonderful. We had very close seats, but I've sat more to the middle and higher back before. The theater is small enough, you can sit anywhere and enjoy the show. It is very worth your money to see this play.

We found this show to be awesome. It is the story of Hawaii with a little cirque flare. When you go in, they give you a little pamphlet which tells you about the show and the story. TAKE THE TIME TO READ IT! It is quick. The show is all in Hawaiian with some english narration. A great way to learn a little about the beautiful islands and people you are visiting. Highly recommend.
