QUEEN OF THE MIST is a world premiere musical with words and music by 5-time Tony nominee Michael John LaChiusa (The Wild Party, Marie Christine, Hello Again). Based on an astounding and outrageous true story, two-time Tony nominee Mary Testa (On the Town, 42nd Street, Marie Christine)
stars as Anna Edson Taylor, who, in 1901, set out to be the first woman
to shoot Niagara Falls in a barrel of her own design. Navigating both
the treacherous Falls and a fickle public with a ravenous appetite for
sensationalism, this unconventional heroine vies for her legacy in a
world clamoring with swindling managers, assassins, revolutionaries,
moralizing family, anarchists and activists. Convinced that there is
greatness in her and determined not to live as ordinary, she sets out to
tempt her fate.
