Like withered, crimson chrysanthemums, the coffers at the Iao Theater speak to the cachet of this historic venue. It’s tear-worthy to think these blooming architectural adornments were nearly lost to time, as the crumbling former vaudeville house fell into disrepair. Thanks to the community’s action in the ‘80s, by Maui Community Theater, now Maui OnStage, the revitalization of Iao (built in 1928) has today reached new heights. Of any entertainment house on Maui, it is the one with the most character and has harbored the most characters within it.
