Ruth Bolan, President of the Hawai'i Theatre Center since June 2014.

  

   The venerable Hawai‘iTheatre has been through a lot since opening as the “Pride of the Pacific” in 1922.   Vaudeville acts gave way to movies, then a closure in 1984.  The theatre’s reopening in 1996 after a 32 million dollar renovation has always held great promise, and HPR’sNoeTanigawa found a new theatre president is reorganizing with an eye to the future.

Next up at the Hawai‘i Theatre, Kuana Torres Kahele on  February 7, H?lau I Ka W?kiu?s annual concert February 8, and blues singer Eric Bibb, February 13.

Noe Tanigawa covered art, culture and ideas for two decades at Hawaiʻi Public Radio.
