Broadway musical Titanic comes to London’s West End.
Acclaimed Broadway musical Titanic returns to the London stage following its 2013 award-winning run at the Southwark Playhouse.
Director Thom Southerland is once again at the helm of this thrilling production.
Titanic will play a strictly limited 10 week run from 28 May 2016 until 13 August 2016 at the Charing Cross Theatre.
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.
The cast features Philip Rham, Scarlett Courtney, Matthew Crowe, Sion Lloyd, Shane McDaid, Dudley Rogers, Victoria Serra, Judith Street, David Bardsley, Alistair Barron, Helena Blackman, Scott Cripps, James Gant, Luke George, Douglas Hansell, Rob Houchen, Claire Machin, Jessica Paul, Peter Prentice and Dom Simpson.
