About

Directed by ROBERT BARRY FLEMING

Hearts soar in the Tony Award-winning, Calypso-flavored musical, Once on This Island. Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues a wealthy boy, Daniel, from the other side of the island and falls in love with him. But the pompous gods who preside over the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger: love or death, with the stakes being Ti Moune’s life. This recent Broadway hit captivates audiences with a vibrant and unforgettable story of a woman who travels far and wide to reunite with the man who has captured her heart.

“Ravishing! What a delight it is to enter the world of Once on This Island.” — The New York Times
“Just what the world needs now — inspired and uplifting!” — Variety


ADVISORY:
Once on This Island is suitable for ages 10 and up. This enchanting story about a girl who tempts the gods of nature will flood your senses with its thunderous musical score. There is also a sprinkle of onstage violence and some mature themes.

$10 TUESDAYS! On Tuesday, Sept. 10, and Tuesday, Sept. 17, a minimum of 100 tickets for Once on This Island will be available for just $10 each. These tickets can only be purchased in-person at the Box Office beginning at 6 p.m. on the day of the show. Limit two per person. No advance reservations or choice of seating.
