She was a girl from Boston with a voice from heaven, who shot through the stars from gospel choir to dance floor diva. But what the world didn’t know was how Donna Summer risked it all to break through barriers, becoming the icon of an era and the inspiration for every music diva who followed.

Genèse: The La Jolla Playhouse presented the musical in a limited engagement from November 7 until December 24, 2017. The musical premiered on Broadway at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on March 28, 2018 (previews), prior to an April 23, 2018 opening. The musical is directed by Des McAnuff, with scenic design by Robert Brill, costumes by Paul Tazewell, lighting by Howell Binkley, projections by Sean Nieuwenhuis, and sound by Gareth Owen. The musical is scheduled to close on Broadway on December 30, 2018 after 289 performances. A tour in North America is planned, starting in September 2019.

Résumé: 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.
