Does this play have an ISBN number? The policy at our playhouse require them and I do not want to order if there is not an ISBN.

Hello - I can't say that I understand the request - if the concern is the legitimacy of a play - I would imagine that a major Broadway production should certainly validate the show's existance. Once On This Island, the original Broadway production also was nominated for 8 TONY Awards, ran nearly 500 performances, and the original London production won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Musical.

Once On This Island JR is an adaptation of the original musical designed for performance by middle school-aged performers, and is a shorter version of the original award-winning musical. This adaptation is not sold separately from a performance license, but the libretto does have an AISN:


The Orignal Broadway Cast album has ASIN: B004VWXU9Q

If your theatre needs somethig with an ISBN number, the published sheet music for this show has these isbn numbers - though these are not the legal materials allowed for licensed performances.

  • ISBN-10: 0897243331
  • ISBN-13: 978-0897243339
