maui theatre, home of `ulalena, welcomes two new shows

John Stephan_RoyOrbisonShowOn June 29, 2013 The Maui Theatre launched two new shows to Maui’s evening entertainment scene.

“You Got It! A Salute to Roy Orbison” is the only show of its kind in the world and is officially endorsed and presented by Roy Orbison’s eldest son Wesley Orbison. The show is a live concert production accompanied by a full band and dancers performing Roy Orbison’s major songs, including his 15 number one hits which made him an internationally recognized superstar.

Australian singing sensation John Stephan makes his Hawai‘i debut with a salute to the legend. With a voice filled with warmth, emotion and a four-octave range, “The Voice From Down Under” will take audience members on an incredible trip through the storied career or Orbison. Covering a multitude of his chart-topping hits including “Pretty Woman”, “Crying”, “Blue Bayou”, “Only the Lonely”, and many more.

“You Got It!” has received rave reviews after the show recently ran in Las Vegas. Las Vegas Broadway World wrote “This guy is so good and gives the audience such a good show, he demands to be written about and of course seen whenever one can. His name is John Stephan and his show is called You Got It! A Salute to Roy Orbison. Stephan doesn’t look at all like Orbison but his voice is breathtaking. (Perhaps that’s why he’s known as ‘The Voice From Down Under’.)”

Jorgen Elfsson a songwriter with over 100 million sales worldwide remarked “John’s unbelievable vocal ability is what I believe to be the finest that I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing. He is a unique talent that is extremely rare, and should be cherished…”
