Ahead of its return to London, this time at the Charing Cross Theatre, catch a glimpse of the cast in rehearsal in a brand new video released.
Running at the Charing Cross Theatre from the 28th May to the 6th August, this revival of Thom Southerland’s production marks the first production in his new programme of works as the Artistic Director of the Charing Cross Theatre.
In the final hour of 14 April 1912 the RMS Titanic, on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, collidedwith 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.
Having been critically acclaimed when it first hit the London stage at the Southwark Playhouse in 2013, the musical now returns to London to wow audiences once again.
Talking about Titanic’s return to the city, director Thom Southerland said: “I am incredibly excited that Titanic will set sail for London again. Having created the production in the intimate setting of Southwark Playhouse, it will be wonderful to see Maury Yeston’s epic musical at such close proximity again.”
