The hit Off-Broadway musical Titanìque, an irreverent send-up of the blockbuster film Titanic, will welcome the return of comedian Russell Daniels (Gutenberg! The Musical, sketch comedy group Uncle Function) to the role of Ruth beginning February 28 at the Daryl Roth Theatre.
That same performance, Elliott Mattox (Beetlejuice, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) will join the cast in the role of Victor Garber. Daniels and Mattox will succeed, respectively, Nathan Lee Graham and Frankie J. Grande.
Titanique currently stars Nicole Parker in the role of Céline Dion, Lindsay Heather Pearce as Rose, Michael Williams as Jack, Grande as Victor Garber (through February 18), Graham as Ruth (through February 25), Brandon Contreras as Cal, with Anne Fraser Thomas as The Unsinkable Molly Brown and Marcus Antonio as The Iceberg. Cayleigh Capaldi, Chani Maisonet, Tess Marshall, Garrett Poladian, and Terrence Williams Jr. round out the company.
Parodying the Oscar-winning film Titanic, Céline Dion commandeers a tour at the Titanic Museum and delivers her version of what really went down between Jack and Rose with hits by the iconic singer, including "My Heart Will Go On," "All By Myself," and "To Love You More."
Marla Mindelle and Constantine Rousouli co-wrote the musical with production director Tye Blue. Titanìque features music supervision, arrangements, and orchestrations by Nicholas Connell, choreography by Ellenore Scott, scenic design by Gabriel Hainer Evansohn and Grace Lauchbacher for Iron Bloom Creative Production, costume design by Alejo Vietti, lighting design by Paige Seber, sound design by Lawrence Schober, wig design by Tommy Kurzman, and prop design by Eric Reynolds. Casting is by The Telsey Office's Rachel Hoffman, Henry Russell Bergstein, and Andrew Fern.
The work transferred from the Asylum Theatre to the Daryl Roth, where it is currently scheduled to run through September 29.
