SUMMER: THE DONNA SUMMER MUSICAL

World-premiere musical directed by Des McAnuff

Songs by Donna Summer, Giorgio Moroder, and Others
Book by Colman Domingo, Robert Cary, and Des McAnuff
Musical Supervision by Ron Melrose
Choreographed by Sergio Trujillo
Directed by Des McAnuff

This vibrant, world-premiere musical charts the incomparable life of Donna Summer, the undisputed Queen of Disco, from her modest Boston childhood to international stardom. Told through the dramatic lens of her final concert, SUMMER: The Donna Summer Musical presents the complexities and conflicts the iconic songwriter and singer faced in her meteoric rise – and descent. Featuring three actresses in the title role and a score with more than 20 of Summer’s classic hits including “Love to Love You, Baby,” “Bad Girls” and “Hot Stuff,” this electric experience is a moving tribute to the voice of a generation.
