Great show with live music and sound effects. It is based on the culture of Hawaii and not a Cirque de Solei type show. Lots of movement around the theatre by the performers with lots of props. Very entertaining.

This show represents the Hawaiian culture and history. The performance is artistic with hula dance. It is Vegas's production styles. It is also a less expensive way to enjoy the Hawaiian culture compare with the dinner show. Don't miss out.

85 minutes of interpretive dance and pantomime. Must read the program in advance to understand the story. Choreography and music was good. A few dancers were professional quality and the live accompanying music was good, though distractingly loud at times. Familiar storyline of noble savages...More

Showing of Hawaii history depicted as a art form by dance and song. Possibly review history before seeing back to myths etc. You will better understand most of the show. Some misleading and some true as I understand. Worth seeing, small audience

This is the second time I've been lucky enough too see this show. Wonderfully entertaining. The history and dancing as well as the muscians, make this a memoriable evening.
