Set sail with the most infamous pirate of all time in a riotous, rowdy high-seas adventure from the creators of The Witches of Eastwick, Brother Russia and The Fix.
After learning he’s a wanted man by the British army, Blackbeard and his merry crew of maritime marauders embark on a fantastical journey across the globe to raise an undead pirate army from the depths of the sea.
Hilarious, wildly original, and immersively staged entirely on a pirate ship, Blackbeard is a fresh musical salute to the Seven Seas.
