Kahekili is a young Hawaiian native in love with the ocean; Jessiee is a 32-year-old midwesterner maxing out her credit cards on an impromptu solo vacation. Both follow some mystical inspiration, personified by a ukulele-strumming guide, to a standard meet-cute on a tourist island. It quickly takes a peculiar twist in Honsol Jung's truly one-of-a-kind romantic comedy, which like its title takes on conflicting double meanings. Elly Green's production for Sideshow Theatre brilliantly capitalizes on every subtle shade of melancholy in Jung's darkly comedic script, but there's an authentic joie de vivre in play too. Katy Carolina Collins and George Infantado create a discordant dynamic that works seemingly by magic. Can an emotional crisis really be uplifting? —Dan Jakes
