New musical explores love, Shadeism
Join the stars and producers of "Caroline, or Change" for an exciting new production of Ahrens and Flaherty’s musical "Once Upon This Island", a love story that explores Shadeism (amongst other themes) against a modern-day Caribbean backdrop.
Artistic Director Mitchell Marcus says: “We are honoured to be an official participant in TD’s ‘Then & Now Series’ for Black History Month, and to have the chance to illuminate the very important issue of Shadeism by reinterpreting ‘Once On This Island’ in a truly thought-provoking and intimate way. I have no doubt that new and returning audiences of all ages will be mesmerized and touched by this Olivier Award-winning musical.”
