“Well worth the time and money”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

We opted to buy tickets for the show only, although there is a dinner package available. We prefer to dine leisurely and not worry about timing. The Ulalena show is captivating and thoroughly enjoyable. It tells the story of Maui with music, dance, acrobats, customes and special effects. The aerial acrobat in the waterfall is especially beautiful and mesmerizing. The scene changes are varied enough to keep you interested and the music performed by a live band using some unusual and exotic instruments is very powerful. After the show we had a chance to meet and speak to the performers who have all led fascinating careers. The show has been going for 13 years.

“Ulalena is Beautifully Done”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

My husband and I just got back from a nightly showing of Ulalena. The show was absolutely fabulous and authentic Hawaiian. The music and dancing where traditional and unique at the same time. The set and the props were colorful and imaginative. It kept our attention for the entire 90 minutes. The performers were engaged in the story and did a great job connecting with the audience. We purchased the dinner package and ate at Ruth Chris' Steak House before the shore. The meal was fantastic. We then received VIP seats and were in the second row, and think we had the best seats in the house. I would recommend this show to everyone visiting Maui.

This show is a history of the islands performed by a hard working cast and directors. It may not be everyone's choice but should see it once. It is a very nice theatre.
