Titanic musical (1997)

In April 1997, the premiere of the musical ‘Titanic’ was in New York's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. Presentation, produced by R. Jones, was closed after 2 years, withstanding more than 800 productions. Roles played by A. Cuervo, D. Garrison, M. Cerveris, V. Clark, D. Stephenson, L. Keith, J. Cunningham & B. D. James. To help to beholders to imagine a full grandeur of this vessel, multi-level decorations were built on a stage, displaying an actual structure of the ship. A real list of passengers of Titanic has been inserted on the walls, including names of those who survived this tremendous tragedy (712 people, according to the existing data).

After a very successful premiere on Broadway, a musical went to the national tour. In July 2012, D. Stephenson & L. Gennaro staged the new version of the famous story. They cut the cast up to 20 people & used a projection of the actual ship, not the scenery, as in the previous version & the original orchestral parts. New reading earned the grateful reviews from critics & was nominated for 11 Broadway World Awards.

In January 2014, it was the premiere of a new version in the Broadway Theatre. Director was S. Weinstein & musical director – E. Doran.

Over the years, the musical has been produced on many large & small stages around the world. In 2001, the production was shown in the Royal Theatre Carre (Netherlands). A year later, the musical came to Germany & in 2005 – to Ireland. By the way, in this country a musical started at 23:40 – the time when the ship was struck by an iceberg. Ireland was in many ways epochal country for creation of this sea vessel, as over 1000 Irish people were building this at the dockyard.

From 2006 to 2012, the musical was also in the US, Canada, Wales, Belgium, Japan & Norway.
