Based on an astounding and outrageous true story, 2-time Tony Award® nominee Mary Testa stars as Anna Edson Taylor, who, in 1901, at the age of 63, set out to become the first person to shoot Niagara Falls in a barrel of her own design. Navigating both the treacherous Falls and a fickle public with a ravenous appetite for sensationalism, this unconventional heroine vies for her legacy in a world clamoring with swindling managers, assassins, revolutionaries, moralizing family, anarchists and activists. Convinced that there is greatness in her and determined not to live as ordinary, Anna decides to battle her fear and tempt her fate. 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.
