Legendary explorer Ernest Shackleton reaches out across time through the internet to contact a single mother in the innovative romance Ernest Shackleton Loves Me. With a book by Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change), this inventive and intimate new musical is heading for off-Broadway -- and this is your chance to see it before it departs. Multitalented singer-songwriter-electric violinist Valerie Vigoda (Toy Story: The Musical) portrays a sleep-deprived single mom who's fired from her day job as a video game composer. Inspired by her music, the famous gentleman-explorer of the South Pole overcomes the distance between them and together they embark on a love affair adventure for the ages. Learn More

Fun, campy show that wraps up in 1 1/2 hours. Takes me back to my teenage days! I almost thought about taking my own teenagers, but I think it is better suited the generation that remembers the music and appreciates the inside movie jokes (i.e., her "Austrialian accent.") The local TV advertising is misleading - don't expect to see Cheyenne Jackson and other members of the original Broadway cast.

Slight, fluffy light musical comedy (and short). Some nice songs and fun performances, but pretty bland most of the time. The broad humor got a little annoying towards the end. Go only if you can get a discount, not worth full price.
Put a bunch of smash hit songs, Tony® Award nominee Douglas Carter Beane and the cutest couple in town into a Broadway musical comedy blender, and what do you get? “Heaven on Wheels,” says The New York Times.
Taking audiences back to 1980 California, this hilarious new musical follows the beautiful Kira, who travels to earth to inspire a struggling young artist named Sonny, as she helps this aspiring painter to find his voice, discover true love and build the world’s first roller disco (not necessarily in that order).
