Ulalena is a beautiful showcase of the Hawaiian culture. The Maui Theatre is a smaller auditorium, so no matter where you sit you will have a great view. I am a big fan of Cirque du Soleil shows, and this one had just a touch of Cirque feel to it. This, mixed with the culture and legends of Hawaii made for an awesome show. The performers are wonderful; the main singer is absolutely amazing. The costumes and dancing are wonderful. We had a fantastic time. I highly recommend this show – It’s a great way to spend an evening in Lahaina.

Beautifully produced, this is a great way to learn of the history and myths of Hawaii. If you do this early on, the rest of the trip and stories you hear about Maui make more sense. The performers are outstanding, the music stirring. A delightful way to learn something. The theater is spacious, well appointed and comfortable. Highly recommend.

My wife and I have attended a number of theatrical performances over the years, Broadway, major city theatres, Cirque du Soleil performances,etc. As vacationers on Maui, we expected more of a luau type
show of Hawaiiana. What a shocking and splendid surprise Ulalena was. It is masterfully choreographed, beautifully presented and a most pleasant theatre experience. I have since recommended it to a number of friends who are on their way to Maui! R. Huston Los Angeles

this was an excellent show. the best show ever.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2013

This was a very interesting show, all about the history of the Hawaiian people from the beginning, with a simulated sea cruise from Tahiti, where they followed the birds, knowing that birds would have to stop somewhere. Then we saw how people lived before the first Europeans arrived, and afterwards, and how the volcanoes erupted. Very well done and well worth a visit. However, I found that as senior citizens, we could have got in for half price, so this worked out quite expensive. If you are 65+, then book your ticket when you arrive on Maui. (Sorry, Viator, maybe you shoud consider a senior category, as well as adult and child?)

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2013

This was an amazing show. Art Direction and Choreography was worthy of Broadway.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2012

Of all the shows I've ever seen, this has to be my favourite and I'm amazed that it hasn't travelled the world! The music, singing and acting are of the highest standard. This is a "Must See".

Too good!

3 star rating: Worth doing February 2014

it was nice

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better March 2014

I purchased Gold tickets and as per the seating chart, expected to be seated in the middle of the theatre. We were disappointed when we're seated towards the back of the theatre. I would not buy theatre tickets blindly again, not knowing which seats I'm paying for. The theatre was half full so I could have purchased the tickets before the show at the theatre. Viator should also consider giving a discount to seniors.

For me the show was okay, it's a matter of opinion. Don't expect a big budget production. After seeing Ulalena, I didn't have that feeling of awe or wonderment that I sometimes have after a show. The cast did give it their all and the main singer had a fantastic voice so I would rate this show 3*** out of 5.
