Critic's Choice

By Joseph Rozmiarek
Advertiser Theater Critic

"The Conversion of Ka'ahumanu": An excellent chamber piece that traces the personal growth of five women during a time of great social turmoil.

"Death of A Salesman": Considered by some to be the best American play ever written, the Arthur Miller classic enjoys an excellent revival at Hawai'i Pacific University.
