In this documentary, filmmaker Ann Marie Kirk shares interviews with over 20 former performers who speak candidly and fondly of their experience at the historic nightclub “The Hawaiian Room”, and the culture shock of going from Hawai‘i to New York City.
“The Hawaiian Room”, located in the famed Lexington Hotel, was an oasis of Hawaiian culture and entertainment in the heart of New York City. Between 1937 and 1966, hundreds of dancers, singers, and musicians from Hawai‘i were recruited to perform at the entertainment venue.
