Video: Workshopping with Once On This Island


It may be the start of the Fall season, but we're getting prepared to be swept away to the Caribbeans with Tony Award® winner Lea Salonga's return to Broadway in Once On This Island!

Once On This Island is 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 on a remarkable quest to reunite with the man who has captured her heart. Ms. Salonga is joined by a stellar cast, including Alex Newell from Glee, Merle Dandridge from Greenleaf and Queintin Earl Darrington from Cats.

The production, led by Tony Award®-nominated director Michael Arden (Spring Awakening revival), has us eagerly awaiting its first performance in November. All those who are patiently waiting are in luck, however! In the video below, the cast of Once On This Island invites viewers to take a behind-the-scenes look as they talk about the workshop process.
