Our hearts—and Titanique—will go on! The Titanic parody musical, playing Off-Broadway's Daryl Roth Theatre, has revealed new casting and an extension, with performances now set through May 14, 2023.
Mrs. Doubtfire's Mark Evans will succeed John Riddle as Cal beginning December 24, with RuPaul's Drag Race star Rosé (Ross McCorkell) joining as Victor Garber from January 26, 2023. Rosé will succeed Ken Wulf Clark (Jagged Little Pill), who himself succeeds Frankie Grande December 23.
They join a cast that includes Marla Mindelle as Céline Dion, Constantine Rousouli as Jack, Russell Daniels as Ruth, Carrie St. Louis as Rose, Desireé Rodriguez as The Unsinkable Molly Brown, and Avionce Hoyles as The Iceberg. Rounding out the company are Blu Allen, Courtney Bassett, Brad Greer, Donnie Hammond, and Kristina Walz.
The musical parody of James Cameron's 1997 blockbuster film, filled with a catalog of Céline Dion hits, features a fictional version of the Canadian singer as an omniscient narrator. Commandeering a tour group at the Titanic museum, she tells guests her version of Jack and Rose's love story. The irreverent show includes the film's famous "My Heart Will Go On," as well as "All By Myself," "To Love You More," and others to explain what really happened to and between the lovers.
Titanique is co-written by Mindelle, Rousouli, and director Tye Blue, and features music supervision, arrangements, and orchestrations by Nicholas Connell. The creative team includes choreographer Ellenore Scott, scenic designers Iron Bloom and Grace Laubacher, costume designer Alejo Vietti, lighting designer Paige Seber, sound designer Lawrence Schober, hair and wig designer Tommy Kurzman, and prop designer Eric Reynolds. Casting is by The Telsey Office/Rachel Hoffman and Henry Russell Bergstein. Lara Tenenbaum serves as production stage manager with Hannah Frye-Ginsberg as assistant stage manager.
The Off-Broadway production is produced by Eva Price. The show 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 live streamed from Le Poisson Rouge during the shutdown. The current run began at the Asylum Theatre and transferred to the Daryl Roth November 20.
