LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR PRE-PERFORMANCE DINNER. “What a delight it is to enter the world of ONCE ON THIS ISLAND!” raves The New York Times. Winner of the 2018 TONY AWARD FOR BEST REVIVAL OF A MUSICAL, ONCE ON THIS ISLAND is the sweeping, universal tale of Ti Moune, a fearless peasant girl in search of her place in the world, and ready to risk it all for love. Guided by the mighty island gods, Ti Moune sets out on a remarkable journey to reunite with the man who has captured her heart.

The groundbreaking vision of two-time Tony Award nominated director Michael Arden (Spring Awakening revival) and acclaimed choreographer Camille A. Brown (NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live) conjures up “a place where magic is possible and beauty is apparent for all to see!” (The Huffington Post). With a score that bursts with life from Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, the Tony Award-winning songwriters of Anastasia and Ragtime, ONCE ON THIS ISLAND is a timeless testament to theater’s unlimited possibilities.

“RAVISHING! WHAT A BIG, BOLD DELIGHT IT IS TO ENTER THE WORLD OF ONCE ON THIS ISLAND.
– Jesse Green, The New York Times

 

“A BEWITCHING MUSICAL THAT CELEBRATES LOVE, RESILIENCE AND THE SPIRIT OF HOPE.”
– Joe Dziemianowicz, New York Daily News
