HONOLULU (KHNL) - The box office at the Neal Blaisdell Center opens at 6am Saturday.

Promoter Jack Lucas explains "This is the real deal that you see on Broadway. No cutdown versions same set and costumes."

With 76 cast members, how do critics describe it? "Stunning, electrifying, elaborate," says Lucas.

A must-see for many island families pulling an all nighter.

Louella Suttle is the very first person in line. "The line starts here. I came by this morning. Saw no one in line. I quickly got in line. I';m first in line."

Many make this camp out a family affair.

Feleti Silva adds, "It's my dream to watch the play on my birthday. It's my big birthday present."

The box office opens at 6 a.m. It will be a huge party with a DJ, food, prizes and people walking away with their tickets.

At 9 a.m., Ticketmaster offers up seats.
