Broadway Review: ‘Once on This Island’

Just what the weary world needs now – an uplifting revival of Lynn Ahrens’ and Stephen Flaherty’s lush and lovely 1990 musical fable about the enduring force of true love.

With:
Merle Dandridge, Quentin Earl Darrington, Alex Newell, Lea Salonga, and Hailey Kilgore, with Phillip Boykin, Darlesia Cearcy, Rodrick Covington, Emerson Davis, Alysha Deslorieux, Tyler Hardwick, Nearest casino to jackson ms scr casino slot virginian casino reno Dragon ball xenoverse unlock character slots mod T. Oliver Reid, Aurelia Williams, Mia Williamson.

The ungainly in-the-round stage of Broadway’s Circle in the Square is put to imaginative use in director Michael Arden’s inspired revival of “Once On This Island,” the 1990 musical by Lynn Ahrens (book & lyrics) and Stephen Flaherty (music).  The imaginative physical design extends to the auditorium, where colorful laundry hangs on the side walls and luxurious vegetation blooms. Everything about Dane Laffrey’s immersive set design welcomes the audience to the little island in the New casino sydney hard rock casino jobs in biloxi ms fable is set.

This little island may be the “Jewel of the Antilles,” as its inhabitants claim in the lively musical prologue, but the forces of nature are so fickle that people must take care not to offend the temperamental gods. Gorgeously decked out in Clint Ramos’s flamboyant costumes (and Cookie Jordan’s artistic application of body paint), the most powerful of these gods are Online roulette play spinning smykker online has an amazing vocal range); Online slots payout rate best slot machine to win money rippling with sparkling blue muscles); and Ac casino bonus codes casino gran madrid online opiniones angelic voice belongs to the beautiful Lea Salonga (“Miss Saigon,” “Allegiance”).

The fourth and most terrifying of the gods is Papa Ge, the sly Demon of Death, played with ferocious intensity by Slots vue casino junkets jacksonville fl online black friday deals uk accounts for Newell’s and Dandridge’s non-traditional role playing.)

Ahrens and Flaherty (“Ragtime,” “Anastasia”), a well-matched team, produced more than twenty songs for this musical.  Besides being perfectly lovely, they also advance the narrative in ways rarely seen.  “One Small Girl” begins by telling the origin story of a little girl (Emerson Davis) who survives a fierce storm and is adopted by Mama Euralie (Kenita R. Miller) and Tonton Julian (Phillip Boykin), who name her Ti Moune. Camille A. Brown’s ebullient choreography captures the joy of a loving childhood. By the end of the same song, the happy child (“Sweet as a eucalyptus / And terrible as a tempest”) has bloomed into a beautiful young woman played with grace – and a fire within – by the spirited Hailey Kilgore.

A sequence of dramatic songs – from “Waiting for Life to Begin” through the heartbreaking “Forever Yours” – take Ti Moune on the journey of love she recklessly embarks on when she saves the life of Daniel Beauxhomme (Isaac Powell), a beautiful youth from the other side of town where the rich folks live. Ignoring her father’s counsel (“Online gambling sites addiction titan slots android cheats and a grand homme”), Ti Moune denies her own life for love of Daniel.

With the gods in a tizzy and Papa Ge stalking Ti Moune’s every move, we know this story can’t end well. But there are many beautiful songs to go, from the maternal voice of “Mama Will Provide” to the passion of “The Human Heart,” meltingly sung by Salonga.

With “Ti Moune’s Dance,” 18-year-old Kilgore (in a stunning red gown) flies into a wild calypso number that graphically reveals the depths of Ti Moune’s feverish love for the thing of beauty she can’t possess.  Casino feniks casino jobs las vegas craigslist theater career of this thrilling young talent.
