Once On This Island

Published on 28th March 2019 by Stickboy BKK

Once On This Island’, a ninety-minute one-act musical, opened on Broadway to great acclaim in 1990 with 8 Tony Award nominations. The show, set on a Caribbean island with the catchy Caribbean influenced score, (Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and music by Stephen Flaherty) was staged again recently and earned a much deserved Tony Award in 2018 for “Best Revival of a Musical.”

Bangkok Community Theatre is staging six performances at the end of March; tickets can be purchased from February 14, 2019.

Based on the 1985 novel My Love, My Love; or, The Peasant Girl by Rosa Guy, ‘Once On This Island’ is set in the French Antilles archipelago in the Caribbean. The plot is reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet crossed with The Little Mermaid. It concerns a peasant girl on a tropical island, who is guided by the island gods of earth, water, love and death. With their guidance and strength, she uses the power of love to bring together people of different social classes and backgrounds.

‘Once On This Island’ promises great fun, great characters, touching moments, and a beautiful line-up of songs. ‘Mama Will Provide’ – is a rousing number about Ti Moune’s journey with Asaka, mother earth, from her home near the sea to the big city where her love lives. ‘The Human Heart’ is a soaring ballad about the power that binds us one to another. The show opens with the upbeat song ‘We Dance’ and ends with the inspiring ‘We Tell the Story’.
