Why See The Queen of The Mist?
She did what?!
In the early 1900s, there was nothing more terrifying for an aging woman than penury that might put her in the poorhouse - so much so that one woman, Annie Edison Taylor, came up with an entirely novel way to avoid it - even if it meant she might lose her life in the process.
Based on the unbelievably true story of Ms. Taylor and her attempt to be the first person to survive a trip over Niagara Falls - in a barrel of all things - to secure financial safety, The Queen of the Mist is a truly fascinating and fantastic tale that blends music of the time with wit, heart and wonder!
Following a sold-out European premiere at Brockley's Jack Studio Theatre, Pint of Wine Theatre Company's highly acclaimed production of Michael John LaChuisa's uplifting musical now transfers to the West End this summer with a talented cast led by Trudi Camilleri's "buoyant" central performance.
