Thank you Beth Wishnie for talking to our cast of Once on this Island Jr tonight. Beth is a producer for the Tony Award winning production of a Once on this Island currently on Broadway. She shared her stories and inspiration with our cast and got to watch a few scenes from our show. We especially want to thank her for reminding us of the message of the show, it takes just one person to make a difference in the world. Thanks so much Beth, it was so great having you with us tonight. This is one special show and everyone should see it. #onesmallgirl#wetellthestory#onceonthisisland#onceonthisislandjr#ossining#broadway#bestrevival#wedance#ossining#mikeriskomusic
“So I hope that you will tell this tale tomorrow. It will help your heart remember and relive. It will help you feel the anger and the sorrow...and forgive.” • @michaelarden is a genius - thank you for this extraordinary revival of OOTI. • 🌺🏝💃🏾

“When I imagine our child I imagine it’s a boy. With that cheeky look of yours like what’s going on inside his mind is much much naughtier than he would ever let out. But when he’s scared he has to come here. Here against my thigh, and burrow in. Close his eyes and pretend the world doesn’t exist and all he hears is my voice saying it’s okay it’s okay.”
#Read#53 of 2018: YERMA by Simon Stone, after Federico Garcia Lorca.
Stone’s adaptation of Lorca’s YERMA follows a woman in present-day London as she succumbs to her obsession with having a biological child, casting time, family, friends, and work asunder in the process.
I was so lucky to have caught this near the end of its New York run at the Park Armory. A harrowing drama with no act break, each scene shift plunging and keeping its audience in anxious darkness, much like its anti heroine is throughout much of the play’s action. Billie Piper was absolutely phenomenal— her Olivier win for her performance in the Best Revival-winning London production makes complete sense.
On the page, there are no physical stage directions— a completely blank state for any subsequent production to explore as they choose to. Would recommend for college scene study and production, adventurous community theatres, and professional groups. Actors: definitely look here for scene work between 1f, 1m; 2-3f.
¡ONCE ON THIS ISLAND es nuestra recomendación veraniega de hoy!
Con voces tan espectaculares como la de Hailey Kilgore o la de Alex Newell viajamos a una perdida isla del Caribe donde encontramos una sociedad dividida según el color de la piel de sus habitantes. En ella vive Ti Moune, una pequeña niña a la que la Madre Tierra parece tener un especial cariño.
La historia está basada en el libro escrito por Rose Guy, con el título 'My, love, my love", publicado en 1985.
Llegó a Broadway por primera vez en 1990, pero ha sido la producción de 2017 la que este año ha ganado el Tony a mejor 'revival' de un musical.
