One Year on Broadway!

One Year on Broadway: Finding Ourselves Between the Sand and the Sea 

This is my love letter to the Broadway musical, Once on This Island.

My debut book weaves together the tale of how my husband and I first saw the musical over twenty-five years ago and how it touched our lives forever. When we had a chance to help bring the musical back to life we jumped at the chance to become co-producers of the 2017 revival of the musical on Broadway.
This is our journey to the Island.

This book is about love, life and what it means to be human. Its about overcoming barriers to 
pursue your own happiness. Its about taking risks and having faith. Finally, its about the value 
of artistic expression and its importance in bringing people from all walks of life together to 
share a common experience. This book was incredibly powerful and made me laugh and cry, 
which after all, is why I go to the theater.

Thank you for taking me on your journey. I read this book in two seatings. There were many 
parts that brought tears to my eyes. I am a big school theatre teacher who first saw this 
show in a hotel performed on a make shift stage by high school students. Later I directed 
it in the round with my students. I have recommended this book to all of my theatre friends. 
This show touches everyone who sees it and I believe this book will as well.


"This book was a work of art, a masterpiece. It’s a beautiful memoir. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down. The author drew me in and the imagery was outstanding. I was sad when it ended but all good things must come to an end." --Isabella
