Summer: The Donna Summer Musical

Tuesday, March 24, 2020 to Sunday, March 29, 2020

All performances have been postponed. All ticket buyers will be contacted by a Box Office representative. 

She was a girl from Boston with a voice from heaven, who shot through the stars from gospel choir to dance floor diva. But what the world didn’t know was how Donna Summer risked it all to break through barriers, becoming the icon of an era and the inspiration for every music diva who followed. With a score featuring more than 20 of Summer’s classic hits including “Love to Love You Baby,” “Bad Girls” and “Hot Stuff,” this electric experience is a moving tribute to the voice of a generation.  

The three actresses who will play the role of musical icon Donna Summer will be Dan’yelle Williamson as “Diva Donna,” Alex Hairston as “Disco Donna” and Olivia Elease Hardy as “Duckling Donna.”
