This new musical will feature music and lyrics by celebrated Oscar-winning songwriter Stephen Schwartz. Based on Lauren Greenfield’s award-winning 2012 documentary filmThe Queen of Versailles and the life stories of Jackie and David Siegel, the book for The Queen of Versailles is by Lindsey Ferrentino (Ugly Lies the Bone, Amy and the Orphans) with direction by Tony Award winner Michael Arden (Parade, Once on This Island) and choreography by Lauren Yalango-Grant & Christopher Cree Grant (Parade).

From computer engineer to Mrs. Florida to billionairess, Jackie Siegel sees herself as the embodiment of the American Dream. Now, as the wife of David "The Timeshare King" Siegel and mother of their eight children, they invite us to behold their most grandiose venture yet: they're building the largest private home in America in Orlando, Florida – a $100 million house big enough for her dreams and inspired by the Palace of Versailles. But with the Great Recession of 2008 looming, Jackie and David's dreams begin tocrumble, along with their lavish lifestyle. The Queen of Versailles explores the true cost of fame, fortune, and family. 

The Queen of Versailles is produced by Bill Damaschke, Seaview and Kristin Chenoweth through her production banner Diva Worldwide Entertainment.  Mr. Damaschke previously produced the Boston world premiere engagement of Moulin Rouge! The Musical, which re-opened the Colonial in glorious fashion in 2018, and went on to win 10 Tony Awards on Broadway including “Best Musical."
