Ulalena is a splendid, moving, exciting, and culturally authentic theater experience. The live music is wonderful. The scenes which take us through the history of the islands and the story of Hawaii are fascinating, some thrilling, and many very memorable. The voices of the cast are strong and beautiful. The aerial work in two scenes is mesmerizing. Don't miss it.... More
