ONCE ON THIS ISLAND

Music: Stephen Flaherty
Book & Lyrics: Lynn Ahrens

From the Tony Award-winning songwriting team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty comes the Tony Award-winning ONCE ON THIS ISLAND. This highly original production garnered eight Tony nominations for its Original Broadway run, and recently received the 2018 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival.

Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel, with whom she falls in love. Unbeknownst to Ti Moune, the pompous gods who preside over the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger, love or death, the stakes being Ti Moune's life. When she pursues Daniel, who has returned to his people, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly status. Her determination and capacity to love, though, is not enough to win Daniel's heart, and Ti Moune pays the ultimate price; but the gods turn Ti Moune into a tree that grows so strong and so tall, it breaks the wall that separates the societies and ultimately unites them.
