With a soaring score that incorporates turn of the century themes with LaChiusa’s signature complexity and insight, Queen of the Mist is the story of a single great fall, and how one woman risked death so that she could live. Directed by 4-time Drama Desk nominee Jack Cummings III (Hello Again, See Rock City & Other Destinations, The Boys in the Band), Queen of the Mist continues the long collaboration between Transport Group and Mr. LaChiusa, which includes the critically acclaimed Drama Desk-nominated productions of First Lady Suite and Hello Again.
Queen of the Mist was commissioned by Transport Group Theatre Company and is the first production of Transport Group’s ten-year cycle, “The 20th Century Project,” exploring themes from each decade in the 20th century. Queen of the Mist takes place during the first decade, 1900-1910.
Queen of the Mist was made possible through major support from The Shen Family Foundation.
