Once On This Island
Once On This Island starring actress and singer Sharon D Clarke is the highly acclaimed Broadway musical based on Rosa Guy's My Love, My Love. Written by Tony-award winning authors Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens the musical received its European premiere at Birmingham Repertory Theatre in 1994. It went on to win the Olivier Award for Best New Musical following a successful West End run.
This passionate and vibrant musical tale tells the tragic love story of Ti Moune, a beautiful peasant girl who devotes herself to a handsome and wealthy Creole planter whose life she has saved from an accident. The course of true love, however, is put to the test as Ti must prove to the island's mythical gods that she is willing to give everything, even her life for the purest love she has ever known.
