This show is not the movie “Titanic,” but is the Broadway musical, based on the historical event, about the ship, its crew and the social situation of the day.
Based on numerous actual characters aboard the great ship, this show focuses on their dreams, hopes and aspirations—as the story of the launching, the collision with the iceberg and the sinking is played out against the background of the rigid class-distinctions of the Edwardian Age. Unaware of the fate that awaits them, the Third Class immigrants dream of a better life in America, the newly-enfranchised Second Class dream of achieving the lifestyles of the rich and famous, and the millionaire-Barons of the First Class dream of their supremacy lasting forever. The ship itself, a dream deemed to be life-protecting and unsinkable by the ship’s Architect Thomas Andrews, journeys into legend in the hands of its Captain, Owner and Crew—as a Stoker, a Lookout and a Telegraph Operator reveal from their perspectives why Titanic was going too fast, saw an iceberg too late and could not summon help to arrive in time.
TITANIC is one of the greatest true stories of our era and it is not just one story, but many stories. Following the expectations and societal notions that came together 100 years ago on board that great ship.
With music and lyrics by Maury Yeston and a book by Peter Stone, TITANIC brilliantly tells the tale of this quintessential disaster.
