Based on the real-life story of history’s Grace O’Malley – an Irish Chieftain and notorious pirate, ‘The Pirate Queen’ is an adventure chronicling the compelling, 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.

From the writers of Les Misérables and Miss Saigon, the show combines classic storytelling and a sweeping score, with the powerful, vibrant traditions of Irish dance and song, to create a modern musical event that is both historic romance and a timeless epic.

It opened on Broadway in 2007. This concert production marks its London debut.

More cast to be announced.
