Queen of the Mist description

Pint of Wine Theatre Company’s acclaimed production of Michael John LaChiusa’s Queen Of The Mist comes to the Charing Cross Theatre for a strictly limited seven-week season from 15 August to 5 October 2019. Queen Of The Mist, which received its UK premiere in a sold-out run at the Jack Studio Theatre in April, is based on the astounding and 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. With a soaring score that incorporates turn of the century themes with LaChiusa’s insightful and engaging style, this award-winning musical is the story of how one woman risked death so that she could live.

Clever, funny and quirky

Very clever and entertaining show. Story is about a real person and her surviving Nigara Falls in a barrel. Actors had great singing voices and you are very close to them on stage so you really get a feeling for the story. Cute theatre and great value.

There’s Greatness But Hidden

My expectations were low but my mind was open and I ended up enjoying this eccentric but passionate work of art. The early 20th Century US American flair was thoroughly conveyed through the centred stage setting equipment, the minimalistic (compared to some) but beautiful costume design and of course the actors themselves and their mainly generalised but steady array of North American accents (some better than others). As for the actual plot of the piece, I’d been warned about it lacking depth (if not relevance) and consistency in its character presentation and moral development but I found none of the above and enjoyed spinning my own ideas for what could be seen, meant and learned from the story and the people in it. As for the music it was absolutely stunning and I’m not normally a fan of the styles represented. The voices were mesmerising throughout and the leading lady’s range, strength and expression I found to be exceptional and beyond what one would normally expect outside of the opera house. A musical treat through and through

Really enjoyed it. Small intimate theatre.

What a little gem.

Niagara re-visited!

A two part show charting the history of this unique event - the only woman to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel and live. Before the break we get to learn about the lady concerned and why she wanted to do the "mark setting" event. After the break it is what happened post event and where it led. Perhaps the only disappointment is not reliving the day itself in any way, with no re-enactment of even part of the day. Overall though a thoroughly entertaining 135 minute show.

Not a barrel of laughs

Don't expect to see the big event - going over Niagra. After that, he second half seems padded. Much of then music is good, if unvaried, but the star belts it out.

Queen of the Mist You’ll already know if you’re going to love this show, you know it already and you’ve probably already booked. You’re the type of person that geeks out on contemporary music theatre in all its quirkiness, you play Sondheim’s PACIFIC OVERTURES whilst you’re ironing and you were probably at the New York premiere of QUEEN OF THE MIST, maybe I saw you, I was there too.
