FAMILY MUSICAL | A captivating legend of romance between a peasant girl and a rich city boy whom she saves from death. This calypso-flavoured re-telling of The Little Mermaid opens on a Caribbean island where villagers comfort a little girl with the story of the orphan Ti Moune, destined to love too much for the human heart to bear. Delivers melody, love and joy in tropical abundance. 1995 Laurence Olivier Award Best New Musical.
