Once on This Island

Next Upcoming Date: Wednesday, January 29 2020

In pursuit of forbidden love, a peasant girl defies the gods and her island’s history to follow her heart. This Tony Award-winning musical “sings, dances and conjures up a storm” (Time Out New York).

Artistic Director Robert Barry Fleming helms a Caribbean-infused tribute to the resilience of the human heart—and to love’s extraordinary power to tear down walls and transform our lives. Set on a tropical island ruled by temperamental gods, this Tony Award-winning musical follows orphaned peasant girl Ti Moune, who falls for Daniel, the son of a wealthy family. Ti Moune is determined to be with her beloved at any cost, but can her courage overcome the age-old prejudices separating their different worlds?
