By Staff | Mar 11, 2010


LAHAINA — The Maui Celebrity Series and Harrah’s Entertainment will present an evening of music and comedy with Paul Rodriguez and Brian Evans at the Maui Theatre in Lahaina on Sunday, March 21, at 9 p.m.

The show will also feature Curtis “Chino” LaForge and King Martin, two new comedians who hail from Maui.

Tickets start at just $22. VIP meet and greet/photo opportunities are available for VIP ticket holders.

In April, comedian David Spade and Evans are slated to perform.

The series is moving to the theater at Old Lahaina Center following the success of the first two shows: Evans and William Shatner on Dec. 18 and Evans and Roseanne Barr on Jan. 15.

“Between the 700-seat capacity theater of The Maui Theatre in Lahaina, and the 1,200-seat Maui Arts & Cultural Center, we will be able to integrate both venues under the series umbrella to maximize exposure for our sponsors while generating greater revenue in order to secure bigger stars to the State of Hawaii,” said Evans, producer of the series.

Harrah’s Casino Entertainment replaced The Hard Rock Cafe as the presenter of The Maui Celebrity Series.

“Harrah’s is the biggest casino operator in the world, and it was my good fortune to headline at one of their properties, in their showroom, just this past weekend. Given I headline at Harrah’s properties, it only seemed a natural approach to bring them on board,” said Evans.

“Stars ranging from legendary comedian Paul Rodriguez to David Spade to Cyndi Lauper are coming to Maui, and we are in the process of approaching — and are in talks with — other stars ranging from Paul McCartney to Rod Stewart, and many other stars whom have not had the privilege of performing on Maui before.”

“February became our transition month from the smaller venue to the theater, and we look forward to the amazing talent that will be coming to Hawaii,” Evans concluded.
