Pint Of Wine Theatre Company presents the UK premiere of the award-winning Michael John LaChiusa musical ‘Queen of the Mist’.
Based on the astounding and outrageous true story of Annie Edson Taylor, who, in 1901 on her 63rd birthday, became the first person to survive a trip over Niagara Falls in a barrel. Featuring a soaring score, the show incorporates themes of celebrity and sensationalism with LaChiusa’s insightful, engaging style, to tell the story of a woman who risked death so that she could live.
The original 2011 Off-Broadway production won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Musical and was nominated for six Drama Desk Awards, including Outstanding Musical.
This production, directed by Dom O’Hanlon and with musical direction from Jordan Li-Smith (The Assassination Of Katie Hopkins (Theatr Clwyd), Ragtime (Charing Cross Theatre)), is being staged in April (9th – 27th) at the Jack Studio Theatre in Brockley (www.brockleyjack.co.uk). Trudi Camilleri (Ragtime and Death Takes a Holiday, Charing Cross Theatre) is Annie Edson Taylor, supported by a talented ensemble cast who take on the roles of the many characters in the life of this unconventional heroine, determined not to live an ordinary life.
