Why See Titanic the Musical?


10th Anniversary tour

The most infamous maritime disaster, the tale of the ill-fated Titanic lives on in infamy as each new generation finds themselves fascinated by the enigmatic ship and its short-lived maiden voyage. This 1997 musical (not to be confused with a certain film of the same name) looks at the lives of nine real passengers, examining their thoughts, feelings, and final hours across the class system, painting an incredible portrait of the post-Victorian, pre-World War society, the likes of which would never be the same again.

Created by celebrated Hollywood screenwriter Peter Stone and Maury Yeston this Tony-winning musical draws inspiration from the music of the period, soundtracking the ship's teeming social strata with everything from Gilbert and Sullivan-esque vaudeville numbers to sweeping orchestral ballads that would make Elgar swoon. A truly moving production (we cried at the London 2016 production), don't miss this brand new tour, launching in spring 2023.

The story of the musical

Titanic The Musical originally opened on Broadway in 1997 (coincidentally the same year as the James Cameron movie was released) at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, where it ran for over 800 performances and scooped five Tony Awards. This pared-down revival was first staged in London in 2013, with critics noting it was a much more emotionally engaging piece this time around, having jettisoned some of the original's bombast.
