Broadway Revival Of Once On This Island Now In Previews

Once on This IslandOne of my favorite shows of all time is Once On This Island. Now when I found out that I was moving to New York, I was so excited. I mean it is the greatest city in the world after all. Plus I would get a chance to see this amazing musical. Unfortunately I moved here two months two late, as the show closed in December 1991.

Cut to some twenty-six years later and the eight-time Tony nominated show is headed back to the Great White Way. The show, which features a score by Tony winner's Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Anastasia), is set to open at the Circle in the Square Theatre on December 3.

Directed by Tony nominee Michael Arden (Spring Awakening), and choreographed by Camille A. Brown (Cabin In The Sky, tick, tick...BOOM!), Once On This Island stars Tony winner Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon, Allegiance) as Erzulie,Tony nominee Phillip Boykin (Porgy and Bess) as Tonton Julian, Merle Dandridge (Tarzan, Spamalot) as Papa Ge, Quentin Earl Harrington (Cats, Ragtime) as Agwe, Alex Newell (Glee) as Asaka, and Broadway newcomer Hailey Kilgore as Ti Moune.

Now that is some cast theatre fans. Now for those of you who want to see the show, I have some great news. It is now possible to get tickets to see Once On This Island at prices that can't be beat. Be advised that while this "Special Offer" is good thru December 24, it is for selects seats only, and as always subject to availability. Get your tickets to see Once On This Island on Broadway at the Circle in the Square Theatre. Who knows? You might just see me there. Until next time theatre fans.
