‘Once on this Island’, a ninety-minute one-act musical, opened on Broadway to great acclaim in 1990 with 8 Tony Award nominations. The show, set on a Caribbean island with a catchy Caribbean influenced score, (Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and music by Stephen Flaherty) was staged again recently and earned a much deserved Tony Award in 2018 for “Best Revival of a Musical.”
‘Once on this Island’ is a joyful, a life-affirming musical. Based on the 1985 novel My Love, My Love; or, The Peasant Girl by Rosa Guy, ‘Once on this Island’ is set in the French Antilles archipelago in the Carribbean. The story begins as Ti Moune is orphaned by a storm. She is adopted by two loving peasants and she dreams of a life bigger than her own. She falls in love with a boy from the rich side of the Island and heals him after he suffers from a car crash. The power of love guides her to overcome death and to her final destiny.
‘Once on this Island’ promises great fun, great characters, touching moments, and a beautiful line-up of songs.
