Broadway’s Once on This Island is the winner of the 2018 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival!

Set on a stunningly detailed re-creation of a sea-swept Caribbean village, Once On This Island surrounds the audience with the vibrant story of a woman who travels far and wide to reunite with the man who has captured her heart. Along the way, you’ll feel breezy winds, the heat of real fire, sand beneath your feet, and take in the scents of authentic island cooking. Plus, you can watch real animals play alongside our cast featuring Glee’s Alex Newell, American Idol’s Tamyra Gray, and Ragtime’s Quentin Earl Darrington. As soon as the show begins, you’ll know why you had to see it at once.

Tony-Award Winner Lea Salonga returns to the island beginning December 27 for 13 performances only!

Final performance January 6!
