Tony Award-winning producer Eva Price (Oklahoma!, &Juliet) announced today that the new hit musical Titanique — the irresistibly funny and irreverent send-up of the blockbuster film Titanic, featuring the songs of pop icon Céline Dion — will further extend its limited Off-Broadway engagement at the Daryl Roth Theatre (101 E. 15th Street) through September 10, 2023.
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.
The musical transferred to The Daryl Roth Theatre on November 20, following two sold-out extensions of its premiere engagement at the Asylum Theater, where it played from June 14 to November 13, 2022. Upon the show’s December 13 reopening at the larger venue, People Magazine declared, “Just when you think it couldn't get better, Titanique makes you love it more, with a glow-up that makes the show even more impactful and irresistible. Yet, there's still a scrappy, endearing "let's put on a show" energy to it, that gives the musical its Titanic-sized charm. You're guaranteed to laugh your iceberg off.”
The cast currently stars co-authors Marla Mindelle (Sister Act, Netflix’s “Special”) as Céline Dion, and Constantine Rousouli (Cruel Intentions, Hairspray) as Jack, alongside Carrie St. Louis (Wicked, Kinky Boots) as Rose, Rosé (Ross McCorkell) (“RuPaul’s Drag Race”) as Victor Garber, Mark Evans (Mrs. Doubtfire, The Play That Goes Wrong) as Cal, Russell Daniels (80’s Prom, That Bachelorette Show) as Ruth, Desireé Rodriguez (“FBI”, “New Amsterdam”) as The Unsinkable Molly Brown, and Avionce Hoyles (Bat Out of Hell, Memphis the Musical Nat’l Tour) as The Iceberg.
