Wrestling <a href=Ernest Hemingway in Broadway" border="0" bheight="100" width="100" align="right"> WRESTLING ERNEST HEMINGWAY
Hawaii Theatre Center
Joe Moore and Pat Sajak will top a stellar cast on stage at Hawaii Theatre in their adaptation of Steve Conrad's 1993 Warner Brothers dramatic comedy of the same name, WRESTLING ERNEST HEMINGWAY. Moore and Sajak, pals since their Army days at the American Forces Network in Viet Nam, wrote the stage adaptation as a team. WRESTLING ERNEST HEMINGWAY centers around two polar opposite retirees who are anything but retiring. Frank (Joe Moore), is a loutish, former Irish-American sea captain, who says he once wrestled Ernest Hemingway. Walter (Pat Sajak) is a soft spoken, mild mannered, former barber who is a dancing enthusiast. The two old men with seemingly nothing in common are living solitary lives in a small Florida town when they meet in a park, and their unlikely friendship begins.

This international smash-hit may be the most popular musical in the world. In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a life-long struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean's adopted daughter. His world-view shattered, Javert commits suicide, and Valjean at last attains the peace he has sought for so long.Epic, grand and uplifting, LES MISÉRABLES packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world. The sung-through pop opera is ideal for a cast of exceptional singers and overflows with melodies that are already standards. A spectacle on Broadway and in London, LES MISÉRABLES is equally effective with a minimal set; it is its powerful affirmation of the human spirit that has made LES MISÉRABLES a popular masterpiece.
