Regional Theater of the Week: The Concert Hall of the Neal S. Blaisdell Center in Honolulu, Hawaii

BroadwayWorld.com, the largest theatre site on the Internet, is excited to announce a new feature to its comprehensive regional coverage - the Featured Regional Theater of the Week! Each week, BWW will introduce its readers to a regional theater located in one of our (over 130!) coverage cities. By exploring these different venues, their history and showcasing the production seasons, BWW continues its commitment to expand our presence in communities and cities across the United States.

This Week's Featured Regional Theater: The Concert Hall of the Neal S. Blaisdell Center in Honolulu, Hawaii

The Neal S. Blaisdell Center is known as the Community Center on the island of Oahu and is conveniently located in downtown Honolulu at the base of Punchbowl. It is easily accessible to Waikiki hotels and shopping centers. Blaisdell Center is situated on the historic site of the former Ward Estate known as "Old Plantation" which the City and County of Honolulu acquired in 1958. The many artesian springs on the Estate have been transformed into tropical fish ponds that wind around the Arena and Exhibition Hall and provide a tranquil setting. The property is also known for its sweeping lawns and coconut tree groves which have existed since they were originally planted at the Ward Estate.
