It chronicles the life of an inspiring heroine who led an extraordinary life as a rogue, lover and mother in 16th-century Ireland. To protect her people and save her one true love, O’Malley must confront the one woman more powerful than her — her fierce rival, Queen Elizabeth I of England.

Originally premiering on Broadway in 2007, this gala performance is directed by Drew Baker with designs by Ben M Rogers.
