A Caribbean Spin on The Little Mermaid Will Have You Cheering in the Aisles
Rain falls, fire burns, wind blows, and hearts soar. Set against a sea-swept Caribbean village, Once On This Island surrounds the audience with the vibrant story of a woman who travels far and wide to reunite with the man who has captured her heart. Check it out when The Firehouse Theatre presents Once On This Island on March 30th!
Winner of the 2018 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, this highly original Caribbean adaptation of the popular fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, celebrates storytelling with a rousing Calypso-flavored tale of one small girl who finds love in a world of prejudice.
Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues Daniel, a wealthy boy from the other side of the island and falls in love. Unbeknownst to her, the pompous gods who preside over the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger, love or death, with the stakes set high: Ti Moune's life.
When she pursues Daniel, who has returned to his people, she is shunned because of her lowly status. Although her determination and capacity to love is not enough to win Daniel's heart and she pays the ultimate price, the gods turn Ti Moune into a tree that grows so strong and tall that it breaks the wall that separates the societies, ultimately uniting them.
“What a delight it is to enter the world of Once On This Island!” raves The New York Times. Time Out New York cheers, “After seeing this imaginative and dynamic musical, you may feel once is not enough!”
