From Tuesday 9th – Saturday 27th April 2019, you can catch Queen of the Mist at the Brockley Jack Studio Theatre.
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, risking life so that she could truly live.
The story explores the fickle world of celebrity and sensationalism at the turn of the Twentieth Century with an unconventional heroine determined not to live an ordinary life.
This production marks the show’s UK professional premiere under the direction of Dom O’Hanlon and award-winning musical director Jordan Li-Smith (The Assassination of Katie Hopkins, Theatr Clwyd and Ragtime Charing Cross Theatre). 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.
The cast includes Trudi Camilleri (Ragtime and Death Takes a Holiday, Charing Cross Theatre) as Anna Edson Taylor, with Will Arundell (Mack & Mabel, London Musical Theatre Orchestra), Emily Juler (Jerry Springer: The Opera, Stockwell Playhouse), Emma Ralston (Bananaman: The Musical, Southwark Playhouse), Tom Blackmore (Grindr: The Opera, Above the Stag), Conor McFarlane (Assassins, Pleasance Theatre) and Andrew Carter (Choir of Man, Edinburgh Fringe and World Tour).
