A Magical Mythical Romance Set to A Calypso Beat

From the creative team that gave us Ragtime, comes this Olivier and Tony Award-winning, dazzling, calypso-flavored musical. Once On This Island tells the tale of the romance between a peasant girl named Ti Moune and Daniel, a rich city boy, whom she saves from death when his speeding convertible swerves and crashes. Set on a ravishing mythical Caribbean Island, Once On This Island, a feast for the eyes and ears, has delighted audiences around the world.
