ABOUT JAMAICA

A small island off the coast of Jamaica, tells about a simple island community fighting to avoid being overrun by American commercialism. A beautiful island girl, Savannah, longs to escape to New York City to live a life of modern conveniences. She is tempted to accept the marriage proposal of a New York businessman visiting the island. However, when an impoverished fisherman, Koli, saves her younger brother’s life during a hurricane, she opts to remain with him.

Arlen’s music parodies the popular form of Calypso, which was popular in the 1950’s, largely as a result of the popularity of Harry Belafonte, for whom the musical was originally written. Belafonte withdrew from the production due to illness, and the musical was then tailored around the talents of Lena Horne.

This exciting musical comedy is directed and choreographed by award-winning artist, educator and activist Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj.
