'Once On This Island' -Hackney Empire Theatre
The stunning little musical that had a great run on Broadway in the early 90s but was a major disaster in the WEst End is back in London!
'Once On This Island' opens at the gorgeous Hackney Empire on July 24th for limited season until mid August.
Sharon D. Clarke stars in a new production directed by the incredibly talented Susie McKenna. (Real life partners by the way).
It has already had runs in Birmingham and Nottingham - talks are already advanced for a short West End season over Christmas.

Love this show! (Trying to think of an Ahrens-Flaherty I don't love actually)

Love this show - such an incredible score (well - every Flaherty/Ahrens show has an incredible score!). Gutted it's on for such a short run at a time I can't get to London - so hope the hint at a short West End run later in the year turns into reality.
