'Titanique' extends Off-Broadway run, finds new theatre
The show will transfer to the Daryl Roth Theatre.
Titanique is taking another voyage! The Titanic parody musical, which was previously scheduled to play at Asylum NYC through November 6, has extended to November 13. Afterward, the show will take a weeklong hiatus and reopen at the Daryl Roth Theatre on November 20, for a second limited engagement through February 19.
Titanique retells the story of James Cameron's Oscar-winning Titanic movie from the perspective of Céline Dion. She narrates what supposedly really happened to Jack, Rose, and the other characters on that ship. The show is set to her biggest hit songs, including the iconic Titanic theme, "My Heart Will Go On."
The four-star New York Theatre Guide review of Titanique reads, "Titanique is one of those shows where anything can happen, so it does, up until the final twists that you surely won't see coming... The cast and creators' enthusiasm is infectious, and if you just let it wash over you, you'll have a boatload of fun."
The current Titanique cast includes Marla Mindelle as Céline Dion, Constantine Rousouli as Jack, Frankie Grande as Victor Garber, Kathy Deitch as the Unsinkable Molly Brown, Mike Millan as Ruth, Alex Ellis as Rose, Ken Wulf Clark as Cal, Avionce Hoyles as The Iceberg. Blu Allen, Courtney Bassett, Donnie Hammond, and Brad Greer make up the ensemble.
Desiree Rodriguez takes over the role of the Unsinkable Molly Brown on October 18, and John Riddle, who originated the role of Cal, returns on October 25.
Titanique is created by Rousouli, Mindelle, and Tye Blue; Blue also directs.
