Titanic The Musical coming to Birmingham
The five-time Tony Award winning Titanic The Musical is coming to Birmingham.
The show opens in Southampton in the week of the Titanic's 106th anniversary, in the same city and same month in which the RMS Titanic set sail.
Based on real people aboard the most legendary ship in the world, Maury Yeston and Peter Stone's 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 mastery lasting forever.
Maury Yeston commented on the announcement of the UK tour: “The idea that a troupe of actors will tour this show in the UK, birthplace of the ship, where the workers of Belfast, the cabin boys and maids and stewards from Liverpool, the officers and crew, the stokers and stevedores from the Midlands all created a miraculous floating city, means more to me than I can say.
"I am touched that, musically, Titanic will finally be coming home, sung by the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of its builders – touched, and forever grateful.”
The original Broadway production of Titanic The Musical won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.
Titanic The Musical reaches Birmingham Hippodrome from June 4 to June 9, 2018. Tickets are available from their Box Office by calling 08443385000 or online from www.birminghamhippodrome.com
