Eric Gilliom's "White Hawaiian"

Back by popular demand…This smart and witty one-man show debuted at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center in late 2019 to rave reviews and three sell-out runs. In 2022 the White Hawaiian launched at the ProArts Playhouse in Kihei for a three-month residency that started in July and had three more sell-out runs, so now we're bringing it back on a monthly basis! Find out why everyone is laughing!
An entertaining autobiographical stage-show that covers the career of Eric Gilliom, his Maui upbringing as a Caucasian with Hawaiian roots and the TV, film, and Broadway roles that have given him hilarious stories to share. Furiously donning outlandish wigs with gaudy costumes, the story unfolds from his great grandparent’s to his grandparent’s on down to his parents then seamlessly into growing up with his six-time Grammy nominated sister, Amy Hānaialiʻi Gilliom. The reliving of his career, highlights and follies, make the full circle story even more rich and entertaining.
“Coconuts don’t fall far from the tree!”
“Back to Back to Back to Back Sellout runs!"

“Based on the foundation of a multigenerational family tribute, White Hawaiian embraces a dizzying array of comedic caricatures, Chaplinesque slapstick, moving drama, multiple hit musical highlights and non-stop laugh-out-loud moments, along with some Hawaiian cultural history. All wrapped up with a knockout performance by its star.” —Maui News
