    Queen of the Mist tickets

    After premiering at the Jack Studio Theatre in a sold-out run earlier this year, Pint of Wine Theatre Company's production of Queen of the Mist is to transfer to the Charing Cross Theatre for a limited run.

    The story centres around the astounding true story of Anna Edson Taylor who, on her 63rd birthday in 1901, became the first person to survive a trip over Niagara Falls in a barrel of her own design. With a score that combines turn of the century themes with Michael John LaChiusa's own engaging style, Queen of the Mist is the story of how one woman risked death so that she could live.

    Writer and composer Michael John LaChiusa is perhaps best known for his 2000 musical The Wild Party, the book for which was co-written with George C. Wolfe, and which was nominated for seven Tony’s and three Drama Desk Awards. Queen of the Mist’s 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.

    All of the original UK cast will reprise their roles for the upcoming run.  Trudi Camilleri (Ragtime, Death Takes a Holiday) stars as Anna Edson Taylor, with Will Arundell (Mack and Mabel), Emily Juler (Jerry Springer: The Opera), Emma Ralston (Bananaman: The Musical), Tom Blackmore (Grindr: The Opera), Conor McFarlane (Assassins) and Andrew Carter (The Choir of Man) completing the cast. Dom O'Hanlon directs, with musical supervision by Jordan Li-Smith and musical direction by Connor Fogel. A UK cast recording is also to be released in the run up to opening night.

    A tale of derring-do and of a woman who risked the ultimate sacrifice to save herself, Queen of the Mist runs at the Charing Cross theatre from 15 August 2019.

    Performance dates: 04 Oct 2019 - 30 Sep 2019

    Running time: 2 hours 15 minutes (incl. interval)

    Age recommendation: Recommended 10+

    Special notice: Any history buffs will be sure to enjoy this unusual tale, and fans of Michael John LaChiusa’s previous work won’t want to miss it either.

    Went to see this show with my daughter just a few weeks ago. We loved it so much we decided to see it again before the run closed. Wow, what an amazing show! Never ceases to amaze me how musicals of interesting historical events come to life. Wonderful, classical singing quality, with an enjoyable and varied score which captured the events of Annie Edson Taylor's successful attempt to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel.

I enjoyed this show so much that I have persuaded my daughter to see it again before this short run ends.

    I have to say I was a bit bored by this show as I was waiting for something spectacular to happen and it was quite a dull storyline. We had the understudy in the lead role and I didn't think her voice was very powerful and strong. Overall, an ok evening but I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend this to people.

    The staging was once again using a central set with audience on two sides which meant that at times actors had their backs to part of the audience, but this was carefully choreographed so that there were always some actors facing you. The show had a very different feel in the second half and I didn't enjoy this as much.

    A very strange show. Story of Anna Edson Taylor, the lady that went over Niagara Falls in a barrel - a difficult story for a stage show. Good acting but an odd performance with lots of circling the stage with suitcases and chairs. Definitely something a bit different but not sure I’d recommend it.
