Using the style of a Caribbean folk tale about love, the story revolves around a peasant girl who falls in love with a wealthy boy from the other side of the island. When their divided cultures threaten to keep them apart, guided by the island gods, she sets out on a quest to reunite with the boy who captured her heart.
The score is by Tony winners Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime). Michael Arden, who directed last season's revival of "Spring Awakening" directs. The musical was first produced on Bway in 1990.
