CHARING CROSS THEATRE
(formerly the New Players Theatre)
QUEEN OF THE MIST (musical)
Previews from 15th August, opens 19th August 2019. Ends 5th October 2019.
Pint of Wine Theatre Company’s acclaimed production of Michael John LaChiusa’s
Queen of the Mist is to transfer to Charing Cross Theatre for a strictly limited
seven-week season from 15 August to 5 October 2019.
Queen of the Mist, which received its UK premiere in a sold-out run at the Jack
Studio Theatre in April, 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.
Queen of the Mist explores the fickle world of celebrity and sensationalism with
an unconventional heroine determined not to live an ordinary life. With a
soaring score that incorporates turn-of-the-century themes with 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 entire cast will join the transfer.
Trudi Camilleri (Ragtime, Death Takes a Holiday, Charing Cross Theatre) is Anna
