Once On This Island
Book and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Music by Stephen Flaherty
Directed by Cece Suazo
Produced by Elijah Green and Martin Feldman and Susan Weisbarth and Alison Boole
The Tony Award-winning musical ONCE ON THIS ISLAND tells the tale of Ti Moune, a fearless peasant girl who falls in love with a wealthy boy from the other side of the island. When their divided cultures keep them apart, Ti Moune is guided by the powerful island gods, Erzulie, Asaka, Papa Ge, and Agwe, on a remarkable quest to reunite with the man who has captured her heart. Bursting with Caribbean colors, rhythms and dance, the story transforms the reality of a tropical village devastated by a storm into a fantastical world alive with hope.
ONCE ON THIS ISLAND is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI)

FOOLS
by Neil Simon
Directed by Jeremy Palmer
Produced by Catherine Rahm
FOOLS is the comic tale of Leon, an enthusiastic young schoolteacher who seeks to cure the Ukrainian village of Kulyenchikov from the curse of chronic stupidity from which they have been suffering for 200 years. Hired to educate Sophia Zubritsky, the daughter of the town doctor, Leon falls in love with her at first sight, even though she just recently learned to sit down. Dr. Zubritsky is hopeful that this teacher will be the one to break the curse since the vendor sells fish instead of flowers, the shepherd is always losing his sheep, and the postman keeps all the mail.
FOOLS is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.
