Now through-June 4: Manoa Valley Theater's Wait Until Dark
Manoa Valley Theatre will captivate audiences with the mystery thriller from Frederick Knott,
from the 1966 and 1998 Broadway seasons. It’s the story of a sinister con man and two ex-convicts who are about to meet their match when they deploy a cleverly constructed deception on a blind woman whom they think unknowingly possesses a doll of particular interest to them. Seemingly disadvantaged, it is only when darkness falls and she turns off all the lights leaving the perpetrators to maneuver in the dark that the real cat-and-mouse game ramps up. You'll be on the edge of your seat as this thriller masterfully moves from one moment of suspense to another and builds toward an electrifying, breath-stopping final scene.  The production will run May 18 – June 4. Show times are Wed. 7:30p.m., Thur. 7:30 p.m., Fri. 8 p.m., Sat. 8 p.m., and Sun. 4 p.m. Tickets are $40. Seniors and military are admitted for $35, youth 25 years old and under for $22.

May 25 - 27: The New Mastersounds at Blue Note Hawaii Showtimes: 6:30pm & 9pm
Doors: 5pm & 8:30pm
Tickets: $35, $25, $15
In the late 1990’s, guitarist and producer Eddie Roberts was running a club night in Leeds called “The Cooker.” When The Cooker moved into a new venue with a second floor in 1999, there was space and the opportunity to put a live band together to complement the DJ sets. Simon Allen and Eddie had played together in 1997 as The Mastersounds, though with a different bassist and no organ. Through friends and the intimate nature of the Leeds music scene, Pete Shand and Bob Birch were added on bass and Hammond respectively, and The New Mastersounds were born. Though it was raw, and more of a boogaloo sound at first, it was powerful from the start. Their first rehearsal was hot enough for Blow it Hard Records to release on two limited-edition 7” singles in 2000.

The album reached #6 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart and was later certified double platinum by the RIAA. It featured “Cult of Personality,” a #13 hit on the Billboard 200 Singles chart as well as the Top 40 hit, “Glamour Boys.” “Cult of Personality” went on to earn the band their first Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance.

It won a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Album and featured guest appearances by Queen Latifah, Little Richard, Doug E. Fresh, and Maceo Parker. 

After a split in 1995, Living Colour returned in December 2000 and began recording “Collideøscope”.
