Mueller, who won the 2014 Tony Award for best actress in a leading role in a musical for her performance as Carole King in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, is equally well known for her leading roles in the Broadway hits Waitress and Carousel, for which she received Tony nominations.

Starring Scarlett Johansson and Channing Tatum, “Fly Me to the Moon” is a sharp, stylish comedy-drama set against the high-stakes backdrop of NASA’s historic Apollo 11 moon landing. Sparks fly in all directions as marketing maven Kelly Jones (Johansson), brought in to fix NASA’s public image, wreaks havoc on launch director Cole Davis’ (Tatum) already difficult task. When the White House deems the mission too important to fail, Jones is directed to stage a fake moon landing as backup, and the countdown truly begins. The film will be released in theaters on July 12, 2024 by Sony and Apple.
