On a tropical isle in the Caribbean, a child seeks comfort in a storm. Her fellow villagers tell her the story of Ti Moune, a young peasant girl who falls in love with a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, and of the four impassioned gods who make a bet over which is stronger, love or death. Le Petit kicks off its second century of great theatre in the heart of the French Quarter with the spectacular musical fable from the Tony Award-winning songwriting team of Ragtime and Anastasia.
Winner of the Olivier Award for Best Musical and nominated for eight Tony Awards, Once on this Island is a rousing Calypso-flavored tale of one small girl who finds love in a world of prejudice.
