Danielle Tarento in association with Southwark Playhouse presents
Music and Lyrics by Maury Yeston. Book by Peter Stone.
In the final hour of 14th April 1912 the RMS Titanic, on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, collided with an iceberg and ‘the unsinkable ship’ slowly sank. It was one of the most tragic disasters of the 20th Century. 1517 men, women and children lost their lives.
Based on actual characters aboard the greatest ship in the world, Maury Yeston (Nine, Grand Hotel, Phantom) and Peter Stone’s stunning musical focuses on their hopes and aspirations. 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.
Winner of 5 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.
“The greatest American Musical to have been written in 15 years”
Sheridan Morley, The Spectator
