Once On This Island
April 21, 2017 - April 23, 2017
"Winner of the 1995 Olivier Award for Best New Musical, Once on This Island is a play-within-a-play set on a mystical island in the Caribbean. Vibrant costumes and dance blend with Calyspo-style Afro-Caribbean sounds to tell the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who rescues, and then falls in love with, a wealthy boy from the other side of the island. Although shunned and rejected by the boy’s family and friends, Ti Moune’s capacity to love ultimately unites the two worlds in the most unimaginable way."
