Set in the French Antilles, this celebratory musical from the Tony Award-winning creators of Ragtime and Seussical combines elements of both Romeo and Juliet and The Little Mermaid. The result is an exhilarating, calypso-tinged story filled with infectious rhythms, rousing dance and exuberant theatricality. The Tony-nominated hit chronicles the fairy-tale love of a young peasant girl for a handsome young aristocrat -- a love that leads her to save him from death. As the gods debate the star-crossed lovers' fate, the islanders gather to sing and celebrate the hope of the human spirit. Olney's production is directed by Alan Muraoka, proprietor of Sesame Street's Hooper's Store since 1997. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
5 Stars. A Must See! An all around superb show with witty dialogue, topical humor and a cast with fabulous chemistry." —MD Theatre Guide
“This entertaining romp from Landless Theatre is dirty, sarcastic, and features a less-than-super kind of hero.” —DC Theatre Scene
“The jokes never get too campy or over-the-top. Captain Freedom may not be the superhero I’d want in charge of saving the world, but that makes this show all the more enjoyable.” —_Washington City Paper _
