‘Lesser Ahi’ remains fresh from start to finish

April 26, 2012
By MICHAEL PULLIAM (mauibackstage@gmail.com) , For The Maui News

MAPA's "Lesser Ahi" is billed as a comedy, but there is much more happening at the Steppingstone Playhouse than laughter. The tale is bittersweet at times with several poignant moments about the meaning of ohana. There are many plays running head-to-head this month, but if you can't make the time to catch them all, don't let "Ahi" slip through the cracks. It may still be a little rough around the edges, but that is the excitement of a world premiere. The story unfolds perfectly as brothers Andrew (Derek Nakagawa) and Anden (Francis Tau'a) share opposite ends of the stage having cell phone conversations with their parents. A "no love lost" relationship between the brothers is quickly apparent.
