BWW Review: ONCE ON THIS ISLAND Launches Stunning National Tour at Nashville's Tennes Photo BWW Review: ONCE ON THIS ISLAND Launches Stunning National Tour at Nashville's Tennessee Performing Arts Center
by Jeffrey Ellis - Oct 16, 2019

Visually stunning. Inventively staged. Compellingly acted. Beautifully told. Utterly delightful. Heartrendingly poignant. What more can be said about Once On This Island, the Lynn Ahrens-Stephen Flaherty musical which launched its national tour in Nashville last night with a remarkable opening performance before a capacity crowd in Andrew Jackson Hall? The critical raves, audience adulation and awards for the recent Broadway revival of the Caribbean-influenced musical were enough to attract ticket-buyers, to be certain, but the sheer artistry of the production and its amazingly talented cast will be more than enough to propel the company forward on their cross-country tour where, we suspect, the accolades will continue to be bestowed upon the heartfelt and authentic story.

And due to future restoration of the Long Wharf, this was the final gala to be held there. The theme this year was a Celebration of the Golden Age of Broadway. A star-filled concert kicked off the evening, with songs from the most beloved musicals including South Pacific, West Side Story, On The Town, Carousel, and more, written by the hilarious, award-winning playwright Jonathan Tolins (playwright of Buyer and Cellar and Bay Street's hit comedy The Forgotten Woman).

'It was a wonderful evening and a great way to celebrate our last summer gala on the Long Wharf,' says Scott Schwartz, Bay Street Theater's Artistic Director. 'We will have a new location next year, but we had an amazing music-filled sunset party that supports Bay Street Theater.' 'The annual gala was a wonderful event and Bay Street's only fundraiser of the year,' says Executive Director Tracy Mitchell. 'Besides being a fun night in the theater and on the Wharf, the gala is the cornerstone of our fundraising efforts allowing us to support more than thirty other community organizations on the East End.' The evening's auction items included a week-long stay in St. Barth's for 4 at a luxury 2- bedroom WIMCO villa, complete with unparalleled concierge service, and roundtrip flights to the island from San Juan via private carrier Tradewind Aviation. Other items included an 8-day cruise on Viking Cruises for 2, a walk on role in EVITA with dinner for 8 guests at The American Hotel, and many, many more. This year, the Bay Street Theater honored Sag Harbor businesses as a thank you for supporting the Gala for the past 27 years, Bay Street Theater honored Bay Street Board Members Luigi Caiola and Erik Batt, who along with their spouses and families have been devoted supporters.
