Once On This Island

An island of storytellers come together to tell a story of love, bravery, and strength…the story of the peasant girl, Ti Moune.  An orphan, chosen by the Gods, is taken into a simple and loving family. Though content, she feels like she was destined for something more. After a terrible accident caused by a wicked storm, Ti Moune falls for a handsome, ailing, stranger whom she tries desperately to nurse back to health. She bargains with the Gods for his life, but to do so she must make the ultimate sacrifice. This sets our young peasant girl on the ultimate quest to answer the age-old question, can love conquer death?

This rousing musical by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty won a Tony Award in 2018 for best Revival. Based on the 1985 novel “My Love, My Love; or, The Peasant Girl” by Rosa Guy, “Once on This Island” is a Caribbean-set retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Little Mermaid.
