Once On This Island New York Tickets
Once on This Island New York TicketsOnce on This Island is the story of two different worlds brought together by love, with some help from the gods. The vision of reviving Once on This Island was borne out of the creative minds of award-winning director Micheal Arden and choreographer Camille E. Brown. The musical features a score from Tony Award-winning songwriters Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. The revival premiered on Dec. 3, 2017, at the Circle in the Square Theatre in New York City. The production opened with a cast that featured Broadway legends like Tony Award-winner Lea Salonga, Merle Dandridge and Quentin Earl Darrington. It also featured new faces like Hailey Kilgore and Alex Newell. It closed its Broadway run on Jan. 6, 2019.
Once Again: A Timely RevivalAs calamities become the new norm, the revival of this well-loved Broadway classic is as timely as it gets. Dane Laffrey, set designer for the revival, said a three-day visit to Haiti inspired him to create a set that mimics an almost-natural and immersive experience of Once on This Island. Haiti was stricken by a massive earthquake in 2010 and while on the road to recovery was again clamped down by Hurricane Matthew in 2016. Laffrey added that what he saw in the calamity-stricken country inspired him to have free-range livestock, garbage and a huge tractor-trailer on set. Once on This Island tells the story of peasant girl Ti Moune who rescued wealthy boy Daniel and their love story. However, unknown to Ti Moune, the gods of the island made a bet on whether love or death is much stronger and at stake is her life. In the end, love was not as powerful as Ti Moune imagined it to be, and Daniel left her for the life he knows. Death instantly took the young girl, but her determination and capacity to love were rewarded by the gods by turning her into a tree. As a reincarnated tree, she is now powerful enough to break walls that divide societies.
