“The greatest American Musical to have been written in 15 years. A triumph! A score which soars…a masterpiece.” - Sheridan Morley, The Spectator
An internationally produced musical based on numerous actual historical characters aboard Titanic, 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 hegemony lasting forever.
The ship itself, a dream deemed by the ship’s Architect Thomas Andrews to be unsinkable, and thus its own lifeboat, 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 the iceberg too late, and could not summon help to arrive in time.
“The Gem of the Ocean. Astonishingly, Titanic manages to be grave and entertaining, somber and joyful; little by little you realize that you are in the presence of a genuine addition to American musical theatre.” - Nancy Franklin, The New Yorker
