The anticipated Broadway revival of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty’s Tony Award-nominated musical Once on This Island will sweep into Broadway’s Circle in the Square November 9 under the direction of Tony Award nominee Michael Arden.
This fresh take on the production is driven by an all-new soundscape that incorporates non-traditional instruments, found objects, and vocal arrangements to transform Ahrens and Flaherty’s score.
The musical will star Hailey Kilgore as Ti Moune in a cast that also boasts Tony Award winner Lea Salonga, Alex Newell, Phillip Boykin, Merle Dandridge, Quentin Earl Darrington, Alysha Deslorieux, David Jennings, Kenita R. Miller, and Isaac Powell.
A handful of lucky fans will get to see and hear this new Once on This Island during an exclusive pop-up preview event at Renaissance New York Times Square Hotel on September 27. Congratulations to Leah A., Mark B., and Angela G., who won tickets through our giveaway!
The event will feature director Arden, as well as cast members Darrington and Newell, who will perform from the show. Once on This Island composer Flaherty will accompany them on piano.
