Emma Ralston: The Queen Of The Mist
EMMA RALSTON could recently be seen playing CARRIE NATION in the London premiere of THE QUEEN OF THE MIST at the Charing Cross Theatre.
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. 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.
