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
Quotes & Highlights
- "A real comic gift...delicious." <em>--Variety</em>
Amidst the art deco splendor of Cole Porter's New York, Molière's brilliant farce gets a hilarious jolt of champagne wit and jazz age dazzle. When a debonair heartthrob proposes to his high-society sweetie, he soon discovers that Mama has another beau in mind, a gold-digging poet as pompous as he is pedantic. In this enormously clever satire of upper-crust extravagance who knows whether reason, greed, or true love will prevail?
