Synopsis

April 10, 1912: On her maiden voyage, White Star Liner Titanic sets out from London. “The Largest Floating Object in The World,” she is already big news. April 15, 1912: Titanic, the unsinkable ship, sinks, and over 1,500 men and women go down with her. What happened in those two days? In a stunning chamber musical as massive as the ocean liner that shares its name, Titanic tells the stories of the men and women who were there. From the workers, such as Barrett, the stoker in the boiler room, the lively band, and first class steward Mr. Etches; to the passengers, like the three poor Irish Kates in third class, aspirational gossip Alice Beane, and the wealthiest men in the world, Astor and Guggenheim; to the men who built, helmed, and owned the Titanic, Maury Yeston and Peter Stone’s musical tells the tragic story with a compassionate book, intelligent lyrics, and soaring melodies. Full of memorable characters based on the real men and women on the ship, Titanic is a powerful, complex look at the making of a tragedy.
