Book and Lyrics by Michael LaChiusa
Anna Edson Taylor, a struggling 63-year-old schoolteacher, threw caution to the wind in 1901, plunged over Niagara Falls in a barrel and lived to tell about it. Convinced that there is greatness in her and determined not to live as ordinary, this musical follows her as she sets out to battle her fear and tempt her fate. This is the story of a single great fall, and how one woman risked death so that she could live.
“smarter than most musicals and certainly more musically engaging.” — Exeunt
