WORLD PREMIERE APRIL 2024
In 1901, 63 year-old Annie Edson Taylor became the first person to survive going over Niagara Falls in a barrel. Her plan: To capitalize on her newfound notoriety by touring music halls around the country, regaling audiences with her feat of daring-do. Bur that's not how things worked out.
Annie never got her moment in the spotlight... until tonight.
This is the extraordinary life of Annie Edson Taylor, told as a full Vaudeville bill including magic, dance, bare-knuckle boxing, puppets, song, and burlesque.
Most of it actually happened. The rest of it should've.
It turns out that going over the Falls was nowhere near the biggest risk Annie ever took.
