Join us at Feinstein’s/54 Below for Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty’s Once On This Island. This highly original Caribbean adaptation of the popular fairy tale, The Little Mermaid tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who rescues a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel, with whom she falls in love. When Ti Moune pursues Daniel, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly status. Her determination and capacity to love, though, is not enough to win Daniel’s heart, and Ti Moune pays the ultimate price; but the gods turn Ti Moune into a tree that grows so strong and so tall, it breaks the wall that separates the societies and ultimately unites them.
This musical, which recently won a Tony Award® for Best Revival, features unforgettable songs, such as “Waiting for Life,” “Mama Will Provide,” “Rain,” “Forever Yours,” and more! Featuring a cast of NYC’s rising stars, this concert is produced by Nicole Lippey, Sean Zuni Green, and A Work of Heart Productions.
