Titanic




This 1997 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical is set on the RMS Titanic, the world-class ocean liner which sank on its maiden voyage on April 15, 1912.


Story:

Among others, the owner, designer, and captain of the newly built RMS Titanic stand in awe of the impressive feat of engineering. As the crew arrives and the passengers board, the mosaic of characters is introduced, and their conversations reveal their social status and satisfaction with life. When the ship’s owner demands that the captain increase the speed to arrive in New York early, the Titanic tragically collides with an iceberg, tossing the voyage into a state of chaos and the passengers into a situation of immense danger.
