Tony Award-winning producer Eva Price (Jagged Little Pill, Oklahoma!) announced today that the world premiere run of Titanique — the irresistibly funny and irreverent Off-Broadway musical send-up of the blockbuster film Titanic, featuring the songs of pop icon Céline Dion — will transfer to a bigger theater in downtown Manhattan, the Daryl Roth Theatre in Union Square. Performances at current venue, The Asylum Theatre (307 W 26th St.), will continue through Sunday, November 13, and the first performance at the Daryl Roth Theatre (101 E. 15th Street) will be Sunday, November 20 for a limited engagement through Sunday, February 19, 2023.
“Titanique is the show of dreams,” says Producer Eva Price. “This musical has captivated audiences in a way I’ve never seen before—and the audiences, in turn, have catapulted it into a true smash hit Celine-derella story. While we will miss our partners at The Asylum and the shutdown Gristedes above (RIP!), The Daryl Roth Theatre is a stunning space, with its own lore. This new lifeboat is ready to take on all who have been clamoring to board!”
When the music of Céline Dion makes sweet Canadian love with the eleven-time Oscar®-winning film Titanic, you get Titanique, a musical celebration that turns one of the greatest love stories of all time into a hysterical and joyful slay-fest. Want to find out what really happened to Jack and Rose on that fateful night? Just leave it to Céline Dion to casually hijack a Titanic Museum tour and enchant the audience with her totally wild take, recharting the course of Titanic’s beloved moments and characters with her iconic song catalog. A one-of-a-kind musical voyage bursting with nostalgia, hilarity and heart, Titanique features powerhouse voices in show-stopping performances of such hits as “My Heart Will Go On,” “All By Myself”, and “To Love You More,” backed by the unparalleled energy of a full live band.
