Maui Revealed Guidebook:

Biggest, most elaborate show ever to take place on Maui. Theater is state of the art with booming sound and excellent lighting. The music and percussion throughout are effective, and the dancers are disciplined. Some very creatives scenes. The last three scenes are so beautiful and uplifting, you can’t help but leave smiling. It’s fun and entertaining.
