About this show

Tony Award winner Lea Salonga returns to Broadway in Once on This Island, a Broadway musical from the Tony-winning writers of Anastasia and Ragtime.

Once on This Island is the tale of Ti Moune, a fearless peasant girl who falls in love with a wealthy boy from the other side of the island. When their divided cultures keep them apart, Ti Moune is guided by the powerful island gods — Erzulie (Salonga), Asaka (Alex Newell of Glee), Papa Ge (Merle Dandridge, Greenleaf), and Agwe (Quentin Earl Darrington, Cats) — on a remarkable quest to reunite with the man who has captured her heart.

Bursting with Caribbean colors, rhythms, and dance, Once on This Island comes to vibrant life in a striking production by Tony-nominated director Michael Arden (the Spring Awakening revival) and acclaimed choreographer Camille A. Brown. The show transforms the reality of a tropical village devastated by a storm into a fantastical world alive with hope.
