We opted to go to this show instead of an outdoor luau. We had 3 adults and 3 teens/Tweens. We all loved it! Before the show, we wandered up and down the shops at Front Street. The Maui Theatre is small, so basically every seat...More

Picked up tickets to fill in an open evening and so glad we did! Wonderfully entertaining show. Read the handout you get before the show and you'll follow it much better. A surprise highlight to our stay.

This play is definitely well worth the money and provides a brief overview of the true Hawaiian culture. This is something that you would not want to miss. They only offer this show 3 days per week so make sure you get tickets in advance.
