Once On This Island, Jr.
Book and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens. Music by Stephen Flaherty.
Based on the story My Love, My Love by Rosa Guy.
Directed by Timothy D. Turner
Musical Direction by Timothy D. Turner
This highly original and theatrical Caribbean adaptation of the popular fairy tale “The Little Mermaid” sings and dances the story of Ti Moune, the black peasant girl who rescues, nurses and falls in love with Daniel, a mulatto from a wealthy family. When Daniel is returned to his people, the gods who rule the island guide Ti Moune on a quest to test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred and death. “Once On This Island” is a director/choreographer’s dream, an intimate show presented in a dance/movement-driven style reminiscent of story theatre, with minimal – though colorful – sets and costumes that capture the imagination of the audience. Its catchy, contemporary, and Caribbean-flavored score by the Tony® Award-winning songwriting team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (“Ragtime” and the animated film “Anastasia”) includes tender ballads and rousing celebratory numbers for an ensemble cast of strong singers.
