Created by the Tony Award-winning songwriting team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, this highly original and theatrical Caribbean adaptation of the popular fairy tale, The Little Mermaid and Rosa Guy’s novella, My Love, My Love, won the Olivier Award and garnered eight Tony nominations for its first Broadway run, including Best Musical, Book and Score. This beautiful musical tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who rescues and falls in love with a wealthy boy from the other side of the island. The gods who preside over the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger, love or death, the stakes being Ti Moune’s life. Once on this Island is a story of love’s power to overcome prejudice.
ONCE ON THIS ISLAND is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All arranged performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com
