TheatreWorks, the nationally acclaimed theatre of Silicon Valley, presents the Tony Award-nominated musical ONCE ON THIS ISLAND. Heartwarming and inspiring, this exuberant musical from the Tony Award-winning creators of Ragtime follows Ti Moune, a peasant girl on a tropical island in the French Caribbean. When she rescues a wealthy young aristocrat from the wreckage of a car accident, a star-crossed love affair begins in defiance of the class divide. A timeless legend filled with joy, heartache, and adventure, ONCE ON THIS ISLAND, winner of the Oliver Award for Best New Musical, boasts a score pulsing with irresistible Caribbean beats by Tony Award-winner Stephen Flaherty, with book and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens. TheatreWorks Artistic Director Robert Kelley will direct this uplifting musical, which takes its story from a book by Rosa Guy, in turn inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid,” and is choreographed by award-winning director, choreographer, and actor Gerry McIntyre.
