One of the most beloved musicals in Broadway history: ONCE ON THIS ISLAND tells the epic story of Ti Moune, a fearless peasant girl who, guided by island gods, sets out on a remarkable journey to follow her heart and find her place in the world. Based on Hans Christian Anderson’s “The Little Mermaid”, the musical tells a story of racial and class divide, of tragedy, of love, and of hope.
Content Note: ONCE ON THIS ISLAND’s plot deals with themes of racial and class conflict. There is mild violence shown and threatened, as well as references to death and injury.
