After Michel Legrand’s Amour, I’m back at the Charing Cross Theatre this summer for the transfer of Michael John LaChiusa’s award-winning Off-Broadway musical Queen Of The Mist in August.

Queen Of The Mist is based on the astounding and outrageous true story of Anna Edson Taylor, who, in 1901, on her 63rd birthday set out to be the first person to survive a trip over Niagara Falls in a barrel of her own design.

With a soaring score that incorporates turn of the century themes with renowned composer Michael John LaChiusa‘s insightful and engaging style, this award-winning musical is the story of how one woman risked death so that she could live.

The original 2011 Off-Broadway production of Queen Of The Mist won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Musical and was nominated for six Drama Desk Awards, including Outstanding Musical.

The musical received its UK premiere care of Pint of Wine Theatre Company in an acclaimed, sell-out run this past April at west London’s Brockley Jack Studio Theatre. Dom O’Hanlon‘s production now transfers with its original cast, starring Trudi Camilleri (Ragtime, Death Takes A Holiday) as Anna Edson Taylor, along with Will Arundell, Emily Juler, Emma Ralston, Tom Blackmore, Conor McFarlane and Andrew Carter.

After the 7.30pm performance on Tuesday 20 August 2019, I’ll be joined by members of the Queen of the Mist cast and creative team. Any questions? Join us!
