Broadway star Davis Gaines, who reigns supreme with his run of more than 2,000 performances as The Phantom of the Opera, takes the title role in Musical Theatre West's revival of this all-time family favorite, a romantic comedy perfect for Valentine's season. The Music Man follows fast-talking salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments for a boys' band he vows to organize -- despite the fact that he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. The Tony-winning musical boasts a rousing score from Meredith Wilson, with memorable tunes like "Seventy-Six Trombones," "Ya Got Trouble," "Till There Was You" and "Goodnight, My Someone." Learn More

This was one of the worst events I ever attended. It comes close to The Barthalomew's Fair I saw in London many years ago and which I now peg as an unentertaining and save-your-money event. This Na Lei Hulu I Ka Wekiu was a bore to the teeth. I was sat in my chair with thoughts of regret for paying good money (3 tickets) for this event and with a glimer of hope that somehow the show may improve in the second half and redeem my decision to attend this event with 2 other guests. The show sort of improved in the 2nd half with some palpable music but by end of the show we were thoroughly and completely disappointed. The worst part was when the dancers draged a corpse in white cloth and screamed for the next 10 minutes. Save your money if you ever think about attending this event. Not only did I pay good money for this event but the experience left a bad scar in my mind.

A great evening of entertainment and dance. The dance pieces were beautifully choreographed and the dancers in amazing sync. I would see this dance company again and recommend to others. Thanks for a great evening of entertainment.
Based on the groundbreaking new book of the same name by Lucia Tarallo Jensen and Natalie Mahina Jensen, Daughters of Haumea recreates the roles of the ancient women of Hawai'i through an exciting blend of hula kahiko, hula 'auana, and hula mua. Hula mua is Patrick Makuakâne's trademark style of hula, which pays homage to tradition while bringing hula into a modern realm. The book, Daughters of Haumea, is the winner of the 2006 Ka Palapala Po'okela award for excellence in general Hawaiian culture.
