The Voice Meets Maleficent in this World Premiere Musical


Book and Lyrics by Anton Dudley & Music by Brian Feinstein

October 14 – November 15, 2015


Signature favorite Donna Migliaccio stars in this fantastical world premiere musical fairytale, brimming with magic, darkness and blinding ambition.

Legendary record producer Daniella Espere is searching for her next international sensation. She discovers it in her long-lost niece, Tina, who dreams of being a world-famous pop star. Despite warning signs that all may not be as it seems, the two eagerly forge a mother/daughter bond and Daniella transforms Tina’’;s image, voice and talent into star quality… but not by the usual means.

With an electrifying pop-laden score, Girlstar invites audiences of all ages to follow one girl’‘s breathtaking journey and asks, how far is too far to go to become a star?

“Signature, a venue that specializes in developing new musicals.” –Variety
