The cast of Titanique, including Marla Mindelle, Constantine Rousouli, Frankie Grande, and more met the press at a special event June 8. See photos from the preview below.
The musical parody of the James Cameron-directed blockbuster Titanic makes its New York return at Off-Broadway's The Asylum Theatre with a limited engagement beginning previews June 14 and opening June 23, with the run set to continue through September 25. Along with Mindelle, Rousouli, and Grande, the cast features Kathy Deitch, Ryan Duncan, Alex Ellis, John Riddle, and Jaye Alexander. Rounding out the company in the ensemble are Courtney Bassett, Donnie Hammond, and Dimitri Moise.
Featuring the music of Céline Dion, the irreverent show presents a hijacked tour at the Titanic museum that treats audiences to an eccentric take on the famous love story of Jack and Rose. Through Dion as a character, popular songs from the singer's catalog such as "My Heart Will Go On," "All By Myself," and "To Love You More" explain what really happened to and between the lovers.
Co-written by Mindelle, Rousouli, and Tye Blue, the show is directed by Blue, choreographed by Ellenore Scott and features music supervision, arrangements, and orchestrations by Nicholas Connell. Clarissa Marie Ligon is production stage manager and Rebecca Guskin is assistant stage manager, with Eva Price serving as producer. Casting is by The Telsey Office's Rachel Hoffman and Henry Russell Bergstein.
The show originally premiered in Los Angeles in 2017 before transferring to New York City's The Green Room 42. The show also had a virtual concert performance livestreamed from Le Poisson Rouge during the shutdown.
