“What a delight it is to enter the world of ONCE ON THIS ISLAND !” raves The New York Times. Winner of the 2018 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, ONCE ON THIS ISLAND is the sweeping, universal tale of Ti Moune, a fearless peasant girl in search of her place in the world, and ready to risk it all for love. Guided by the mighty island gods, Ti Moune sets out on a remarkable journey to reunite with the man who has captured her heart. The groundbreaking vision of two-time Tony Award-nominated director Michael Arden ( Spring Awakening revival) and acclaimed choreographer Camille A. Brown (NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live ) conjures up “a place where magic is possible and beauty is apparent for all to see!” ( The Huffington Post ). With a score that bursts with life from Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, the Tony Award-winning songwriters of Anastasia and Ragtime , ONCE ON THIS ISLAND is a timeless testament to theater’s unlimited possibilities.
