A new musical based on the award-winning 2012 documentary The Queen of Versailles, and the life of Orlando beauty queen, socialite and TV personality Jackie Siegel is set to take to the stage in Boston this summer.


The musical, "The Queen of Versailles" will depict the lives of Jackie Siegel and David Siegel, owners of Westgate Resorts, as they struggled to build the largest private home in America at 6121 Kirkstone Lane, Windermere - a $100 million house inspired by the Palace of Versailles that the couple began construction on in 2004, and is still not finished in 2024, thanks to the recession of 2008 and later as they tragically lost their teenage daughter Victoria to an overdose.


"The Queen of Versailles" will have its world premiere this summer at Boston's Emerson Colonial Theatre. The Broadway-aimed production will begin previews July 16, with the five-week engagement currently scheduled to continue through August 18.

The Queen of Versailles will reunite celebrated Oscar-winning songwriter Stephen Schwartz with Tony and Emmy Award winner Kristin Chenoweth as Jackie Siegel. With a book by Lindsey Ferrentino (Ugly Lies the Bone, Amy and the Orphans) and direction by Tony Award winner Michael Arden (Parade, Once on This lsland), The Queen of Versailles promises to explore the true cost of fame, fortune, and family.


Joining Chenoweth on stage are Oscar-winning actor F. Murray Abrahamas David Siegel, Melody Butiu as Sofia Flores, and Nina White as Victoria Siegel. Additional cast and creative team members will be announced at a later date.
