Titanique, a musical parody of the James Cameron-directed blockbuster Titanic, has announced its cast for its New York return at Off-Broadway's The Asylum Theatre this summer. The limited engagement will begin previews June 14 and will open June 23, with the run set to continue through September 25.
Including several Broadway alums, the cast will star Marla Mindelle as Céline Dion, Constantine Rousouli as Jack, Frankie Grande as Victor Garber, Kathy Deitch as Molly Brown, Ryan Duncan as Ruth, Alex Ellis as Rose, John Riddle as Cal, and Jaye Alexander as The Iceberg. The ensemble will feature 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 will be directed by Blue and feature music supervision, arrangements, and orchestrations by Nicholas Connell. Joining the creative team are Clarissa Marie Ligon as production stage manager, Rebecca Guskin as assistant stage manager, and Ellenore Scott as choreographer. Eva Price serves as producer. Casting is by The Telsey Office's Rachel Hoffman and Henry Russell Bergstein. Additional creative team members will be announced shortly.
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.
