About the showTitanic returns to London to play at the Charing Cross Theatre for a ten week run this summer, following a previously award-winning run at Southwark Playhouse in 2016.
Directed by Thom Southerland, best known for his work directing Death Takes A Holiday, Ragtime and Allegro, the original Southwark run won 4 Off-West End Awards, including Best Musical Production, along with the WhatsOnStage Award for Best-Off West End Production and Broadway World UK’s award for Best Fringe/Regional Musical.
The Titanic musical first opened on Broardway in 1997, with book by Peter Stone (Charade, Father Goose) and music and lyrics by Maury Yeston (Nine, Grand Hotel).
The original production won Best Musical at the Tony Awards, as well as 4 other Tonys, before touring both nationally and internationally.
This new production opened in June 2016 at the Charing Cross Theatre to glowing four and five star reviews. With its innovative premise, great songs and insightful look into one of the greatest disasters of all time, Titanic was one of the most popular underground musicals of summer 2016.
Who Should See It?If you were one of the people whose imagination was captured by James Cameron’s 1997 film of the disaster, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, then this musical is perfect for you. Going further into the societal hierarchies and real life personal experiences of a range of passengers on the ship, this brilliant and powerful musical retells the story like never before.
Due to the subject matter and traumatic experiences, this musical is not recommended for children under the age of 12.
