Once on This Island: A Masterpiece  

One on This Island is the creation of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens. Both of them have earned nominations for several accolades including two Academy Awards each. Flaherty who has previously provided his compositions for different musicals like, ‘My Favorite Year,’ ‘A Man of No Important’ and ‘The Glorious One’ has given the music for this show. On the other hand, Ahrens, who has won a Tony Award for his work on the hit Broadway musical, ‘Ragtime,’ has penned down the lyrics of the show. She is also credited for writing the book of Once on This Island.

Based on the novel, ‘My Love, My Love; or, The Peasant Girl’ written by the Trinidad-born American writer, Rosa Cuthbert Heart, the duo decided to introduce Once in a Lifetime in 1990. On May 6th of that year, the show was taken on a test run and was performed at Off-Broadway’s Playwrights Horizon. It concluded its performances on May 27th.

On October 18, 1990, the show opened on Broadway with a performance at the Booth Theatre in New York City, New York. It ran for four hundred and sixty nine performances before ending on December 1, 1991.
