ONCE ON THIS ISLAND
Book and Lyrics By LYNN AHRENS
Music By STEPHEN FLAHERTY
Based Upon The Novel ” My Love, My Love ” By Rosa Guy”
Ti Moune, a peasant girl in the Antilles, falls in love with Daniel after she rescues him from a car crash. Four gods, Asaka, Agwe, Erzulie, and Papa Ge, guide Ti Moune as she is separated from Daniel and his wealthy culture on the other side of the island.
This vibrant production, filled with colorful Caribbean rhythms and dance, depicts a storm-ravaged, divided island as it transforms to a place of hope and beauty. Once on This Island tells the story of love’s triumph of over prejudice and hate.
Recommended for ages 8 and up.
ONCE ON THIS ISLAND is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials also supplied by MTI.
