Titanic The Musical is to embark on a new UK tour in 2023 to mark the 10th anniversary of the show.
With music and lyrics by Maury Yeston and a book by Peter Stone (Woman of the Year and 1776), Titanic The Musical first premiered on Broadway in 1997 where it won five Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.
The new UK tour celebrates the 10th anniversary of its London premiere where it won sweeping critical acclaim across the board.
The tour will open at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley in March 2023 before touring across the UK over the Spring and Summer next year.
Thom Southerland directs with set & costume design by David Woodhead, lighting designer by Howard Hudson, sound design by Andrew Johnson, musical staging by Cressida Carré and new musical arrangements by Ian Weinberger
Casting is to be announced.
Based on real people aboard the most legendary ship in the world, Titanic The Musical is a stunning and stirring production focusing 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.
The tour will be produced by Danielle Tarento, Steven M Levy and Vaughan Williams in association with Mayflower Theatre, Southampton.
Danielle Tarento said: “Steven, Vaughan and I are so excited that the great ship Titanic is setting sail on a new UK Tour. I can’t believe that it’s been 10 years since that first production at Southwark Playhouse – it feels like a lifetime ago and only just the other day in equal measure!
“After the couple of years that we’ve all lived through, to be able to mark this anniversary by revisiting some favourite venues from the last tour and also bringing the show to some new ones feels especially joyful.”
