“Yeston…rivals Gershwin, Kern, Rodgers” rave for Theatre Guild’s “Titanic”

“Adroitly-staged, superbly sung. The evening begins with a 15 minute mini-song cycle by Yeston that captures time, place and bits of character with an astonishing melodic ease that rivals the best of such theater titans as Gershwin, Kern and Rodgers.”

- Rick Talcove, National Edition

“Wow! Composer-lyricist Yeston, whose other musicals include Nine, Grand Hotel, and the regional favorite Phantom, has written some of his most gorgeously hummable songs for Titanic The Musical, and virtually every cast member gets his or her own solo. It ought perhaps to be presented from now on, in concert form. Brilliantly directed and staged by Calvin Remsberg and performed by a sensational cast of twenty-nine, Monday night’s concert staged reading, to be repeated next Sunday, surely stands as not only one of the most powerful stagings TITANIC THE MUSICAL has had in the years since Broadway, but one of Musical Theatre Guild’s crowning achievements. For those who missed the boat on Monday, TITANIC THE MUSICAL will be sailing one more time on Sunday at 3:00. To paraphrase one of TITANIC’s best songs, ‘You must get on that ship!’”
