Once on This Island Musical

The 2018 Tony Award-winning Broadway show Once On This Island is coming to Dallas at the Winspear Opera House, and right now, you can get 20% off tickets to the show during its December 17-22 run.

Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, the Tony-winning team behind the hit musicals Ragtime and Seussical, wrote this Caribbean-inspired score for this calypso-style story. The duo drew inspiration from Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid. If you want to get away from the cold, then come out get lost in a tropical wonderland filled with an eclectic group of talented artists.

Once On This Island tells the story of Ti Moune, a fearless peasant girl looking for her place in the world and is willing to put it all on the line for love. Ti Muone is guided by the mighty island guides as she embarks on her journey to reunite with the man who has captured her heart.

Two-time Tony Award nominated director Michael Arden and acclaimed choreographer Camille A. Brown have created “a place where magic is possible and beauty is apparent for all to see!,” according to the Huffington Post.

The stellar cast features members from the 2017 Broadway revival of the musical with American Idol alum Tamyra Gray, Cassondra James, Tony Award nominee Phillip Boykin, and more.
