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

Stephen Michael Deininger and Brett Hurt had beautiful voices and were a pleasure to enjoy. The audience clapped after each solo and it distracted from the continuity of the play much the same as clapping during a pause in a concert piece. The flow would have been better appreciated sans the clapping and it would have seemed more like a play than a song concert. When the actors entered more immediately it did not occur as there was no pause.
The music stand light of the Bass was very annoying and the seats inappropriate for enduring 80 minutes without a break. Next time at thia theatre I will bring a cushion.
