It's been 84 years since the last casting announcement for Titanique …or maybe just a couple of weeks .Comedian and star of screen & stage Nicole Parker (“Mad TV,” Wicked, Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me) will re-board the ship of dreams  for a limited return engagement as Céline Dion, in the 2023 Lortel Award-winning Best Musical Titanique. 

Parker, who replaces current star Jackie Burns (Wicked, If/Then, Hair) will perform the role beginning February 9th, through March 31st, 2024. The irresistibly funny and irreverent musical send-up of the blockbuster film Titanic, driven by the songs of pop icon Céline Dion, continues its smash-hit run through June 16th, 2024 at the Daryl Roth Theatre.

All aboard NYC’s must-sea musical comedy! When the music of Céline Dion makes sweet Canadian love with the eleven-time Oscar®-winning blockbuster film Titanic, you get Titanique, off-Broadway’s most award-winning splash hit, which turns one of the greatest love stories of all time into a hysterical musical fantasia. Want to find out what really happened to Jack and Rose on that fateful night? Just leave it to Céline Dion to enchant the audience with her totally wild take, recharting the course of Titanic’s beloved moments and characters with her iconic song catalog. Sailing on fierce powerhouse voices in show-stopping performances of such hits as “My Heart Will Go On,” “All By Myself”, and “To Love You More” – backed by the unparalleled energy of a full live band – Titanique is a one-of-a-kind theatrical voyage bursting with nostalgia, heart, and campy chaos.

Co-written by Tye Blue, Marla Mindelle and Constantine Rousouli, Titanique celebrated its Off-Broadway premiere in June 2022 at Asylum Theater, starring the musical’s co-authors Mindelle and Rousouli as Celine Dion and Jack Dawson. After several sold-out extensions, the musical transferred to the Daryl Roth Theatre on November 20, 2022. 

Titanique currently stars Jackie Burns in the role of Céline Dion – who will play her final performance on January 28, 2024. Lindsay Heather Pearce (Mean Girls, “Glee”, Wicked) continues as Rose, Michael Williams (Cruel Intentions The Musical) as Jack, Willam (RuPaul’s Drag Race, A Star is Born) as Victor Garber through January 7, Drew Droege (Bright Colors and Bold Patterns, “Search Party”) as Ruth through January 7, Brandon Contreras (Almost Famous, “The Homo Sapien Experience”) as Cal, with Anne Fraser Thomas (Hercules) 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 current acting company.

As previously announced, Frankie Grande returns to play the role of Victor Garber from January 12th - February 18th, and Nathan Lee Graham joins the cast as Ruth from January 12 - February 25.
