Much speculation surrounded the original production of Titanic during its run on Broadway, and previews at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in April of 1997 were shrouded by mishaps and technical difficulties, leading to mostly negative reviews. Manhattan Concert Productions will now raise Titanic from the depths, highlighting the award-winning score, and present what BroadwayWorld.com referred to as a "cast of dreams" which includes Michael Cerveris, Victoria Clark, Brian d'Arcy James, Jill Paice and more.
