From the Tony Award-winning team behind Ragtime comes this enchanting Caribbean-flavored adaptation of the timeless tale of the Little Mermaid. The heroine has been recast as an orphaned peasant girl...the hero a wealthy mulatto, saved from death and nursed to health by the love of this girl he may never have. Challenged by the taboo of intermingling between the aristocrats and the peasants, our heroine will fight the powers of prejudice and hatred with love on her side. Will the gods of the island smile on her effort? Come and see. Once On This Island is sure to capture imaginations of all ages!
