"I am sitting on a beach somewhere in the middle of the Pacific. I'm really enjoying my time here. I feel relaxed, energized... and I am embracing a sense of calm that I haven't felt in years. I've been staring at a blue lagoon. As I write this I am watching a seagull mutilate a writhing baby shark. Wish you were here."
In a Polynesian Mood is a unique blend of rock concert, cabaret, poetry slam, and performance art about dreams, longing, and tiki bars.
Written and performed by Ashley King and Greg Portz, In a Polynesian Mood finds the duo destitute in New York after a brief and spectacular journey through the world of resort cover bands. They relive their experience through monologues, original songs, and covers while they await the chance to audition for their dream gig…a show at a resort in Polynesia.
