About the Show

Madeline Ashton is the most beautiful actress (just ask her) ever to grace the stage and screen. Helen Sharp is the long-suffering author (just ask her) who lives in her shadow. They have always been the best of frenemies…until Madeline steals Helen’s fiancé away. As Helen plots revenge and Madeline clings to her rapidly fading star, their world is suddenly turned upside down by Viola Van Horn, a mysterious woman with a secret that’s to die for. After one sip of Viola’s magical potion, Madeline and Helen begin a new era of life (and death) with their youth and beauty restored…and a grudge to last eternity.

Starring Tony Award® nominees Megan Hilty (Wicked, “Smash”), Jennifer Simard (CompanyDisaster!), and Christopher Sieber (SpamalotCompany), with Grammy® Award winner Michelle Williams (Destiny’s Child, Chicago), DEATH BECOMES HER, based on the classic 1992 film, is a drop-dead hilarious new musical comedy about friendship, love, and burying the hatchet…again, and again, and again.

Life’s a bitch and then you die. Or not!

About the Theatre

Lunt-Fontanne Theatre

205 W 46th St
New York, NY 10036

The Lunt-Fontanne Theatre was built in 1910 as The Globe, named after Shakespeare’s original theater.  The venue featured a retractable roof to cool the patrons during summer months.  This feature was eliminated in 1932, when the theater was converted into a movie house.

In 1958, the theater was named after husband/wife actors Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, who performed in the newly renovated theater’s first production, The Visit. During Titanic: The Musical’s run, the Theatre’s lobby was painted with all the names of those who were on the Titanic’s voyage.
