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.
Titanic is the first production in a major season of musicals, which includes the European premiere of Maury Yeston’s Death Takes  a Holiday, announced last month by Southerland on his appointment as Artistic Director at the Charing Cross Theatre.
The production also includes set and costume designs by David Woodhead, lighting by Howard Hudson and sound by Andrew Johnson.
Titanic will play at the Charing Cross Theatre from the 28th May until the 6th August. To book tickets visit: Ticketmaster.co.uk, Discount Theatre.com, Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk, Theatre People.com and UK Tickets.co.uk.
