More Information


This Tony Award-nominated musical by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime) is based on “The Little Mermaid” novel My Love, My Love by Rosa Guy. Presented as a “play within a play,” the story is told in song and dance by a cast of village storytellers who join together during a storm on a small island of the French Antilles. The tale they tell is one of struggle between races, classes and the will of the gods who rule their superstitious lives. Forbidden love, destiny and fate make this enchanting story a winner for all ages.
