BWW Review: TITANIC Thrills in Mac Theatre Production
by Frank Benge - Mar 9, 2016

TITANIC is a musical with music and lyrics by Maury Yeston and a book by Peter Stone that opened on Broadway in 1997. It won five Tony Awards including the award for Best Musical. Set on the ocean liner RMS Titanic which sank on its maiden voyage on April 15, 1912; TITANIC has improved with age. The music is simultaneously complex and accessible with lyrics that draw characters, offer thought provoking debate and fills in details with skill and depth. In the impressive production staged by Joshua Denning at McCallum Fine Arts Academy, it reveals itself to be a show of great musical complexity as well as being a show capable of stirring the heart and mind simultaneously, a welcome antidote to all the overblown mega-musicals of today.
