An unconventional Musical is part primitive folk myth and part romantic tragedy. It tells of love and sacrifice in a relationship doomed by racism. Loosely based around the idea of "The Little Mermaid" by Hans Christian Andersen. Once On This Island acquired a new cultural slant in an exotic colourful setting highly charged with vigorous Caribbean music dance rhythms and magic. Playing originally on Broadway in October 1990 and running for 487 performances the show opened in to London in 1994 where a further success was ensued.
