More about the show

More than a hundred years later, the ill-fated story of the RMS Titanic remains one of the most compelling tales of all time. The musical swept the Tony Awards in 1997 and features some of the most majestic and soaring melodies found in the musical theater. In this new adaptation, the orchestrations have been re-imagined to include only the instrumentation found on the actual ship, a grand piano and a string quartet. The gripping stories of the passengers reflect the resilience of the human spirit, even under the most trying of circumstances.

Kansas City professional premiere.

Act One: 55 minutes • Act Two: 40 minutes
