This past Monday marked the 110th anniversary of Annie Edson Taylor shooting over the Niagara Falls and surviving!
The Queen of The Mist show took place at The Gym at Judson Theatre. If I could wrap up what I thought about the performance in one word, that word would be amazing. The show was so intense it had my heart beating and my emotions soaring. The music was invigorating and the actors – incredible.
The show really spoke to me.
Take a leap.
Want more out of life.
Be fearless and daring!
The space was intricately set up to have the audience at its feet. Turn of the century music like early Berlin and Gershwin had me in suspense.
If I told you the feelings that were shaken up in me while watching Queen of The Mist would you promise to tell your friends? Yes? Well, then here goes.
As I witnessed Queen Of The Mist characters tell this incredible story of a forgotten heroine brought tears to my eyes many times. I couldn’t help shedding tears for this woman.
Annie’s life wasn’t easy and although she had a degree, finding a job with a steady income was one of the many difficult tasks she faced. She believed that her act of pure bravery and guts would bring her out of her terrible situation. But in the end Annie, like many of us at times, gave herself entirely only to be forgotten and ignored.
How many of you have given your all only to be just another face in the crowd? I have, more times than I’d like to remember.
Let this show capture you the way it did me. Go see it! Get tickets here.
