We're sorry, but we couldn’t find any events
In the final hour 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. It was one of the most tragic disasters of the 20th Century.1517 men, women and children lost their lives.
Based on actual characters aboard the greatest ship in the world, Maury Yeston (Nine, Grand Hotel) and Peter Stone’s stunning musical focuses on their hopes and aspirations. Unaware of the fate that awaits them, the Third Class immigrants dream of a better life in America, the newly-enfranchised Second Class dream of achieving the lifestyles of the rich and famous, and the millionaire Barons of the First Class dream of their hegemony lasting forever.
★★★★ - “A brilliantly scaled-down chamber version, this production is a hymn to the idea that ‘small is beautiful’.From my look-out post, I’d judge that the enterprise is on a collision course with glory” - Paul Taylor, The Independent
★★★★ - “Thom Southerland’s splendidly stirring production... under his command, this is a gripping, ambitious ensemble piece and, with a steady hand and a gimlet eye for detail, the director steers it on a course to success” - The Times
“Just back from the last night of Titanic - but surely not the last we’ll see of this production. It has to come back! The original Broadway production remains one of the greatest theatrical events of my life; this more compressed version rivals it.” - The Stage’s No1 Critic Mark Shenton, after his third visit to see it at Southwark Playhouse on August 31, 2013
