About Once on This Island

A modern retelling of "The Little Mermaid" told in joy-filled song and dance takes us to the Caribbean. In this beloved fairy tale of a peasant girl who falls in love with a wealthy boy, the gods who rule the island make a bet with each other over which is stronger, death or love.

Created by Tony Award-winning songwriting team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Seussical, Ragtime), this highly original and theatrical Caribbean fairy tale adaptation garnered an Olivier Award for Best New Musical on the West End, and eight Tony nominations for its Broadway run, including Best Musical, Book and Score.
