Producers Ken Davenport and Hunter Arnold present Once on This Island. The Olivier Award-winner in Best Musical and

This little island, claimed as the Jewel of the Antilles, where the forces of nature are so fickle that people must take care not to offend the temperamental gods. Gorgeously decked out in Clint Ramos’s flamboyant costumes (and Cookie Jordan’s artistic application of body paint), the most powerful of these Gods are Asaka, Mother of the Earth (Alex Newell, who has an amazing vocal range); Agwe, God of Water (Quentin Earl Darrington, rippling with sparkling blue muscles); and Erzulie, the beautiful Goddess of Love, whose angelic voice belongs to the beautiful Lea Salonga  (Miss Saigon, Allegiance)
