‘SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN’
MAUI ONSTAGE AT THE HISTORIC ‘IAO THEATER, WAILUKU
Singin’ in the Rain has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline—the starlet, the leading man, and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers. In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item, but behind the scenes, things aren’t always as they appear on the big screen! Meanwhile, Lina’s squeaky voice might be the end of her career in “talking pictures” without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her. Performances are Friday & Saturday 7:30pm; Sunday 3pm. Info: 242-6969; mauionstage.com.

AI IWANE: ISLAND IN MY MIND / MELISSA ANN PINNEY: GIRL TRANSCENDENT
MAUI ARTS & CULTURAL CENTER SCHAEFER INTERNATIONAL GALLERY, KAHULUI
Two concurrent exhibits will feature personal approaches in photography by two women. Ai Iwane from Tokyo, Japan, has been using a Kodak Cirkut (large-format 360-degree rotating panoramic camera) to develop compelling images of the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster of 2011. Her work also reveals the historic connections between Fukushima and Maui through the traditions of the annual bon dance festivals. Melissa Ann Pinney is a fine art photographer based in Evanston, Illinois. Her works in this exhibition were selected from a long-term exploration of emerging feminine identity, informed by Pinney’s own girlhood and that of her daughter, Emma. Vivid with color, gesture, and light, the images suggest that the mysterious and ardent inner life of girls will withstand their inevitable maturation into adulthood. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Sunday 10am-5pm, except holidays. FREE admission. Info: mauiarts.org.
