   The inaugural production of the new Hawaiian Theatre program at UH Mānoa sold out its first weekend at Kennedy Theatre.   HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports Lāʻieikawai is the story of how the most beautiful woman in Hawai‘i found her true love.  A special fund for Hawaiian Theatre has been started at the UH Foundation for touring and for future productions.

“Lāʻieikawai” continues at Kennedy Theatre on the UH Mānoa campus through this weekend  only.
