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

This beautiful historic theater has a resident community theater company (Maui On Stage) that delivers excellent productions. Have attended numerous plays, and have enjoyed every one of them.

I'd never considered Dirty Rotten Scoundrels as a musical, but it was a great live show, a little raunchy, but it just added to the fun. The audience loved it.

The Iao theater on Maui is a national landmark. Local talent lights up the stage on a regular basis. If you have the chance you should catch a show. One caveat - the seats can be a little uncomfortable.
