Pint of Wine Theatre Company’s production of Michael John LaChiusa’s musical plays a strictly limited seven-week season until 5 October 2019.
Based on the 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, the musical 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 Michael John LaChiusa’s insightful and engaging style, this award-winning musical is the story of how one woman risked death so that she could live.
Trudi Camilleri leads a cast that also features Will Arundell, Emily Juler, Emma Ralston, Tom Blackmore, Conor McFarlane and Andrew Carter. The production is directed by Dom O’Hanlon, with musical supervision by Jordan Li-Smith and musical direction by Connor Fogel. The traverse seating transfer will feature a new set design by Tara Usher.
