About

WONDER…WHAT WOULD WE GIVE FOR LOVE?

It’s a fable as old as time – Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel, and promptly falls in love. As in such stories, the gods and goddesses who preside over the island meddle with Ti Moune and make a bet with one another over which is stronger – love or death. She bargains with the Gods for his life, but to do so she must make the ultimate sacrifice. Told with Caribbean rhythms and instruments, this Tony Award–winning musical is a testament that a beautiful story simply told has the power to inspire all.

ONCE ON THIS ISLAND boldly asks us to look inside of ourselves and Wonder…What Would We Give For Love

WHY SEE THIS SHOW?

Do you love to see classic fables come to life on stage? Do you enjoy music and choreography inspired by the deep history and culture of the Caribbean? You know that you love vibrant music, colorful costumes, and a rich story that is humming with life! All these and more are reasons to come and see this show.

WHO IS THIS SHOW FOR?

This is a show for anyone who loved the blending of gods and mortals from THE LIGHTNING THIEF, stories rich in love and tradition like MISS YOU LIKE HELL, or stories that ask you to believe in the power of magic like MATILDA and THE LITTLE MERMAID.
