Titanic: The Musical

Titanic: The Musical Book by Peter Stone Music and Lyrics by Maury Yeston. Directed by Jamie Scott Blakey and Sarah Scott Blakey Music Direction by Jeannie Scott Cross SYNOPSIS Winner of five Tony Awards including Best Musical, Titanic is set on the ocean liner RMS Titanic which sank on its maiden voyage on April 15, 1912. So many dreams; humankind striving after great artistic work and technological feats, third class to immigrate to America for a better life, second class to live a leisured lifestyle in imitation of the upper classes, first class to maintain their privileged position all dashed simultaneously in the collision with the iceberg to bring about the transformation of character of the passengers and crew. The Box Office and the theater open one (1) hour prior to curtain. The House opens 30 minutes prior to curtain.
