Once on This Island features a book and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and music by Stephen Flaherty. The musical, which premiered on Broadway in 1990, is based on the novel My Love, My Love by Rosa Guy, and the revival production features new orchestrations by original orchestrator Michael Starobin, joined by AnnMarie Milazzo. Michael Arden’s production, which won the 2018 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, runs at the Circle in the Square Theatre.


Fans worried the Broadway run will keep Williams away from releasing new music needn’t fret.  The songstress has taken to social media to tease her newest single set to drop tonight at midnight.

Keep it locked to That Grape Juice for your first listen!

    I know gospel is her thing now, but I’d like her to experiment with some other genres again. Looking forward to giving the single a listen when it drops.
