"How did they build Titanic?" a crewman sings as the new
Broadway musical "Titanic" begins. Eighty-five years after the
supposedly unsinkable ship hit an iceberg and went down in the
Atlantic, the century's most legendary tale of romance, adventure,
greed and ambition is being told live onstage.
Titanic, a new original American musical is a joyous breathtaking and often heartbreaking
show that captures the scope and humanity of what went on during the ship's historic voyage.
Most of the characters depicted in Titanic are based on the real passengers who set sail
on the ship...John Jacob Astor, Isidor and Ida Straus, Benjamin Guggenheim...human
beings caught up in an epic drama that generates overwhelming emotion.
Story and book by Academy Award and Tony Award winner Peter Stone (1776, Woman of
of the Year, Will Rogers Follies, My One and Only), and music and lyrics are by Tony
Award winner Maury Yeston (Nine, Grand Hotel).
Titanic promises to be the theatrical event of the year.
