About The Show

Book by  Lynn Ahrens
Lyrics by  Lynn Ahrens
Music by  Stephen Flaherty

Based on My Love, My Love by Rosa Guy

Through almost non-stop song and dance, this full-hearted musical tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who rescues and falls in love with Daniel, a wealthy boy from the other side of her island. When Daniel is returned to his people, the fantastical gods who rule the island guide Ti Moune on a quest that will test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred, and even death.

With its poignant story and catchy Caribbean-flavored score, Once On This Island JR. is a highly original theatrical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's popular fairy tale. From the TONY Award-winning songwriting team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime and Seussical) this magical tale of love garnered eight TONY nominations, including nods for Best Musical, Book and Score!
