The Broadway revival of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty’s Once on This Island, starring Hailey Kilgore as Ti Moune, is set to begin previews November 9 at the Circle in the Square. The production, directed by Tony Award nominee Michael Arden, marks the return of the show 27 years after it first opened on Broadway in 1990.
The musical follows peasant girl Ti Moune and her star-crossed romance with a young man from the wealthy side of her island, a world ruled by four island gods. The role was originated on Broadway by LaChanze, who earned a Tony Award nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Musical.
The cast also boasts Tony Award winner Lea Salonga, Alex Newell, Merle Dandridge, Quentin Earl Darrington, Phillip Boykin, Darlesia Cearcy, Rodrick Covington, Alysha Deslorieux, Tyler Hardwick, Cassondra James, David Jennings, Grasan Kingsberry, Loren Lott, Kenita R.
