Tony Award-winning producer Eva Price (Jagged Little Pill, Oklahoma!) announced an extension today for the world premiere of Titanique, the irresistibly funny and irreverent new musical send-up of the blockbuster film Titanic, featuring the songs of pop icon Céline Dion. Due to ticket demand, the limited Off-Broadway engagement at The Asylum Theatre (307 W 26th St.) will now play through Sunday, November 6, 2022. Tickets are available at www.titaniquemusical.com.
When the music of Céline Dion makes sweet Canadian love with the eleven-time Oscar®-winning film Titanic, you get Titanique, a musical celebration that turns one of the greatest love stories of all time into a hysterical and joyful slay-fest. Want to find out what really happened to Jack and Rose on that fateful night? Just leave it to Céline Dion to casually hijack a Titanic Museum tour and enchant the audience with her totally wild take, recharting the course of Titanic’s beloved moments and characters with her iconic song catalog. A one-of-a-kind musical voyage bursting with nostalgia, hilarity, and heart, Titanique features powerhouse voices in show-stopping performances of such hits as “My Heart Will Go On,” “All by Myself”, and “To Love You More,” backed by the unparalleled energy of a full live band.
“The news has been rough, this summer has been hot…and clearly, escaping with Celine Dion & the brilliant company of Titanique to the basement of a Gristedes is the salve folks need right now,” says producer Eva Price. “It’s been a show of dreams for all of us, and we’re so thrilled it’ll remain buoyant for six more weeks at the Asylum!”
