After opening to much critical and public acclaim back in December 2017, the new Broadway smash, Once On This Island is now on its North American Tour. Following the story of one island's road to a brighter future, the Broadway production forged a new and ingenious theatrical platform to tell its story.
In this immersive experience, audiences are swept away with the emotions of the story. Awash with color, a fantastic score and a story that has transcended time, Once On This Island is the ultimate feel-good musical whilst providing a social message that everyone could heed.
Taking place on Haiti in the early 20th century, the population of this small island are split between the darker-skinned 'peasants' and the lighter-skinned wealthier population. In a sudden flash flood, a young girl (Ti Moune) is washed away, however, the island gods look kindly upon her and save her life, cementing her important destiny.
Years later, Ti Moune's destiny comes to fruition as she rescues a young rich man from a similar situation that be-falled her in her childhood. However, Ti Moune has a choice, in order to save this young man's life she must trade her soul...
