Ernest Shackleton Loves Me



Ernest Shackleton Loves Me is a wildly inventive musical adventure that tells the story of a sleep-deprived single mom who struggles to balance her family and career as a video game music composer. Late one night, while posting a dating video, she receives an unexpected response from the polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton (1874-1922), one of the most iconic leaders of the 20th century. Shipwrecked and stranded on an iceberg in the Antarctic, Shackleton reaches across space and time and shares his heroic journey with her. Against all odds, they discover that their greatest inspiration lies within each other.

Starring GrooveLily's fierce electro-violinist Val Vigoda (Striking 12) and the charismatic Wade McCollum (Wicked), Ernest Shackleton Loves Me is helmed by Obie Award-winning director Lisa Peterson and written by Tony winner Joe DiPietro (Memphis), with music composed by Brendan Milburn, lyrics by Vigoda, production design by Alexander V. Nichols (Nice Work If You Can Get It), costume design by Chelsea Cook, sound design by Tony winner Rob Kaplowitz (Fela!), and music direction and orchestrations by Ryan O'Connell.
