Entertaining, Personal, Fresh

See it if Really enjoyed this cabaret style show with a loose story thread. These guys were authentic and passionate and just having fun.

Don't see it if Shows with limited staging and story.

Quirky, Cultural, Corny, Slow, Harmonic

See it if New Zealand version of a Mariachi band plays & sings sentimental songs, mostly in the Maori language. Good vocals. Cultural exposure.

Don't see it if Each band member plays a character with a cliched backstory. This helps to motivate the songs. However, the banter felt phony.

Delightful, Quirky, Refreshing, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you like to sit back and enjoy lively music performed with a little comedy and some story that exposes you to a different culture.

Don't see it if if you are looking for a play, though some story is interwoven, this is a musical performance by a talented group.

Slow, Disappointing, Cliched, Awkward script, Great singing

See it if you enjoy male singing groups. The vocals are fabulous.

Don't see it if you're looking for a theatrical event. This is really a concert. Although some of the songs are not in English there's not much Maori to it.

Must see, Quirky, Great acting, Great singing, Clever

See it if Quirky Kiwi foursome hoping for a second chance and a last performance in purgatory hell lounge act.Each recalls a sense of Identity. Great.

Don't see it if It's pronounced "Mawhree" not "Mary," which totally changes the intention of the show when term used. Think the Jordanaires in "Blue Hawaii" Read more

Thought-provoking, Quirky, Entertaining, Great singing, Clever

See it if You want a musical about Maori identity through the decades w/a clever & imaginative style. You want a likeable cast performing great music.

Don't see it if You have little interest in Maori culture. You don't like musicals. You prefer shows w/big production values. You dislike intimate staging.

Thought-provoking, Refreshing, Great singing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you'd like a peek into a Maori culture by four very talented actors and singers. Unusual plot, 4 time periods accompanied by great singing.

Don't see it if you are not interested in Maori culture or do not like small venues. Read more

Quirky, Thought-provoking, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if quartet of likable singers make u feel like you're in their living room; great singing; funny w/tender moments; interested in Maori culture

Don't see it if not a typical play, more like an intimate cabaret performance; slow beginning with comic dialogue that falls flat Read more

New York Theater
January 15th, 2020

"Seems like a Las Vegas-like lounge act [with] an oleaginous Rat Pack rapport…. Yet, it's a testament to the talent and charisma of the performers, and the beautiful harmonies of their songs, that the chintzy framing of the show doesn't smother its appeal."
