Martha Stewart is a master of the kitchen and home entertainment, with her empire including a website, a meal kit service, wine delivery service, and a cooking show with Snoop Dogg. Now in honor of her success, Stewart is getting an entire musical dedicated to her.
The Rise and Fall (and Rise) of Martha Stewart is written and performed by Ryan Raftery, who also created musicals about Anna Wintour and Andy Cohen. The musical will take the audience through the ups and downs of Stewart’s life.
“From her humble beginnings in Nutley, New Jersey, to her empire-building years in Westport, Connecticut, to her highly-publicized stint in federal prison, this is a chronicle of epically blind ambition set to the music of artists as varied as Beyoncé, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Adele, and Metallica,” according to the Public Theater, where the shows will take place.
The musical will debut on August 7 at Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater in New York. Tickets are available online for $35.
