If you're like me, I'm sure you heard the Young Artists Showcase and had nightmares of screeching violins and off tempo music. This was by FAR not that type of concert. Those young artists were amazing and totally awe inspiring. I would prefer to see...More

Have seen two shows at the Iao over the last year while on vacation. The performances were both outstanding considering the size of the theater. Tickets are reasonable and there insn't a bad seat in the house!

We saw Dirty Rotten Scoundrels....the theater was sold out.....it was just great. We had seen this play in London years ago and this performance was way better. We like going over to Wailuku, nice drive but worth it for this play
