Best Revival of a Musical – 2018 Tony Award!  In celebration of its 31st Anniversary, SpeakEasy Stage is thrilled to present a rousing new adaptation of one of the most beloved musicals in its history.  Powered by a pulsating Calypso beat, this delightful musical fable tells the sweeping story of Ti Moune, a fearless peasant girl who, guided by the mighty island gods, sets out on a remarkable journey to follow her heart and find her place in the world. Featuring a joyous, uplifting score by Tony Award winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime, Anastasia), ONCE ON THIS ISLAND is “a bewitching celebration of love, resilience, and the spirit of hope.” (NY Daily News)
