Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg's The Pirate Queen, the spectacular new musical from the authors of Les Misérables and Miss Saigon, comes to Broadway following a world premiere engagement in Chicago. Tony Award-winner Frank Galati directs.
The Pirate Queen is an epic musical adventure celebrating the legendary Irish Chieftain Grace O'Malley. Based on her real-life story, the musical tells of a compelling, inspirational woman; a heroine who led an extraordinary life as a pirate, chieftain, lover and mother in 16th Century Ireland. Commissioned and produced by Moya Doherty and John McColgan, the producers of Riverdance, this new musical combines classic storytelling and a sweeping score, with the powerful, vibrant traditions of Irish dance and song, to create a modern musical event that is both an historic romance and a timeless epic.
