A story with heart
Set on a stormy night in the French Antilles Islands in the Caribbean Sea, raging thunder frightens a little girl to tears. The villagers comfort her by telling the story of Ti Moune (played by The Color Purple star LaChanze in the original Broadway production), a young peasant girl who falls in love with an upper-class gentleman named Daniel Beauxhomme. This tale is a fascinating story of love, faith, grief and hope that has seen multiple revivals over the decades. Premiering in 1990 at Broadway's Booth Theatre, the original production was directed by Argentine-American theatre director and choreographer Graciela Daniele and played for over a year. In 1994, Once On This Island travelled overseas to the West End, where it was recognised with a Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical. It's no coincidence that it keeps coming back for more all these years later! See what the fuss is about with this brand-new revival.

Experience a musical revival like no other
Once On This Island is based on the novel My Love, My Love by Rosa Guy, a Trinidad-born American writer. Acclaimed for her work in fiction for both adults and young people, Guy was the recipient of multiple literary awards and was a huge influence on African-American writers to gain publication after founding the Harlem Writers Guild in 1950. The book is often described as a re-telling of The Little Mermaid with a hint of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Adapted by Lynn Ahrens, a previous collaborator with Graciela Daniele on the hit musical Ragtime, with music by Stephen Flaherty, the 2017 revival has reignited its predecessor's success, winning Best Revival of a Musical at 2018's Tony Awards amongst many other nominations, including Best Actress in a Musical for Hailey Kilgore's portrayal of Ti Moune. A fascinating spectacle, Once On This Island showcases outstanding costume, lighting and sound design and a live soundtrack that will leave you breathless.
