Titanic the Musical
Author(s): Music and lyrics by Maury Yeston, book by Peter Stone
Company: Danielle Tarento, Steven M Levy and Vaughan Williams in association with Mayflower Theatre, Southampton
In the final hours of 14 April 1912, the RMS Titanic, on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, collided with an iceberg and 'the unsinkable ship' slowly sank. 1,517 men, women and children lost their lives.
Based on real people aboard the legendary ship, Titanic The Musical focuses on the hopes, dreams and aspirations of her passengers who each boarded with stories and personal ambitions of their own. All innocently unaware of the fate awaiting them, the third class immigrants dream of a better life in America, the second class imagine they too can join the lifestyles of the rich and famous, whilst the millionaire barons of the first class anticipate legacies lasting forever.
