Release Date July 1
History’s most tragic maiden voyage may not sound like material for a musical, but from the bridge to the boiler room, characters and songs capture the romance, grandeur and adventure that was the voyage of the Titanic. Theatre Brookhaven will present “Titanic” as its summer musical with performances July 21-31.
Inspired by the recovery of some of the wreckage of the ship, Maury Yeston wrote the music for “Titanic” and then enlisted Peter Stone to write the book. The musical opened in New York in 1997, and won five Tony Awards that year including “Best Musical.” The New Yorker’s review of the original production said the play, “… manages to be grave and entertaining, somber and joyful; little by little you realize that you are in the presence of a genuine addition to American musical theatre.”
Directed by Darise Error, with music direction by Gary Okeson, performances are July 21-23 and 28-30 at 8 p.m., with afternoon performances July 24 and 31 at 2:30 p.m. in the Performance Hall. General admission is $15; students and senior adults are $10. Tickets are available at the School of the Arts Box Office at 972-860-4118. Box Office hours are Monday through Thursday from 1 to 5 p.m. and Friday from 1 to 3:30 p.m.
