Owner description: South Pacific Dinner Theatre on Kauai.
Reviewed August 4, 2013

The performance we saw had a girl who couldn't have been more than about 15 playing the lead nurse role and the French guy couldn't have been younger than 50! I've heard of May-December romances but this takes the cake. The talent was uneven at best, the food was Goodyear chicken, and the price was outrageous, $90 for this a seat way in the back, $120 if you wanted to actually see the thing. Low low low value for the money.

This review is very suspicious. The girl that plays this role is 35 years old, and in nine years of performing, she has only missed four shows. Her understudy performed in July 2013; which was a highlight of her career, and yes, she was old enough to play the part, and extremely talented. The show received a full-house standing ovation and the understudy a lot of accolades for her work. I would not call a gifted and talented performer understudying a major theatrical role as "child abuse."

Got to see South Pacific and have a great meal at the Kauai Beach Resort on Kauai.
The meal was excellent and plentiful. The play was wonderful. The scenery, the music, and the performers were excellent. I would recommend it as a nice evening out while on Kauai.

My friends and I really enjoyed the dinner, but particularly the music and energy of all of the actor/actresses. The blonde belly dancer did an interesting number.

Great production of South Pacific - it pulled me in and I felt the emotion of the story. Music and voices were great. The food was the best meal I had on the island this trip. Audience was a blend of multigenerational families. It was great to see entire families sharing this wonderful experience.

Loved the show and the cast was wonderful with Polynesians for the appropriate roles. Enjoyed it and highly recommend it. The food was ok but nothing exciting, alcoholic drinks are extra.
