The Crooner’s ALOHA FRIDAY TRIVIA CHALLENGE!

Friday, October 21, 2011

Aloha kākou!

Here’s this week’s question:

What year did THE BIRD OF PARADISE, a broadway stage play featuring a Hawaiian setting and Hawaiian music (& Hawaiian musicians!), open at Daly’s Theatre in New York City?

A.  1910

B.  1912

C.  1930

D.  1932

• Please submit your answer by posting a reply to this entry on the blog.
• All correct answers will be eligible to win a special email message from me.
• One winner will be randomly chosen at 11:59pm HST.

Will YOU be this week’s lucky winner?

Good Luck!

Aloha Poʻalima! Happy Aloha Friday!

**Crooner Update:

Right on, gang!  Right on!

We had a variety of answers this week.  Love that!  The correct answer is B. 1912.  A giant MAHALO to Ms. Denise Kelton for her additional information about the show being at the Maxine Elliott’s Theatre, too.  According to the IBDB (Internet Broadway Database) the show played at both venues–opening at Daly’s Theatre.  Shortly after opening, it looks like it moved to Maxine Elliott’s Theatre.  I’ll have to do some digging to learn more!

I found a link to an old NY Times article about the show and some of the controversy that surrounded it.  Please click HERE to see the link.  (Note: To read the full article, you’ll need to follow a link to download a PDF.  It’s so cool!!  I love the language used in the article.  Really indicative of the time. Please check it out!)

And this week’s winner, chosen randomly from all of the correct answers is… (Drum roll, please…) KAWAILEHUA!  Congrats, Kawailehua!  You’re this week’s Trivia Superstar!

A giant MAHALO to everyone who “took the challenge” this week and submitted an answer.  I love connecting with you guys on Aloha Friday!  I hope you’ll play along next week, too!

Happy Weekend, gang!

A hui hou…
