Once on This Island

Mar 11 – Apr 16, 2022

Winner of the 2018 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical! We are thrilled to present a rousing new production of one of the most beloved musicals in SpeakEasy and Broadway history: Once on This Island. Powered by a pulsating Calypso beat, this delightful musical fable tells the epic story of Ti Moune, a fearless peasant girl who, guided by the mighty island gods, sets out on a remarkable journey to follow her heart and find her place in the world. Featuring a joyous, uplifting score by Tony Award winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (RagtimeAnastasia), Once on This Island is “a bewitching celebration of love, resilience, and the spirit of hope.” (NY Daily News)

This production is sponsored in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
