Set in the French Antilles, this one-act musical from the 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. Learn More

We enjoyed the play very much. It was well acted & the set was fantastic. The costumes & changes were also clever. Both actors had great energy & excellent repartee. It was nice to see a play about the tenement houses & immigrants of New York.
