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

Entertaining, moving and engaging. Everything came together in the second act. The story was a highlight of what the breakdown of a family can do to men. The stage is a literally a tenement and the setting fittingly showed what a lack of a strong family foundation, lack of education (regardless of drive and skill) can do towards aspirations and limitations. The characters were steeped with history and even the naming of the two characters demonstrated a sort of self fulfilling devolution.
This show contains violence and strong language.
