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

I didn't think I would like this play because I usually avoid British farces. However I found this one to be very funny. Most of the audience was a lot older than I am and I'm in my sixties! They didn't seem to be laughing very much and at one point I felt that I should move to a section of the theater that wasn't as crowded (it wasn't sold out) so that my loud laughing wouldn't annoy anyone. Seeing this play encourages me to see more farces. The play is a little strange so I thought people would leave at intermission but no one did. I recommend giving it a try!.
