"The sinking of the 'Titanic' in the early hours of April 15, 1912, remains the quintessential disaster of the twentieth century. A total of 1,517 souls - men, women and children - lost their lives (only 711 survived). The fact that the finest, largest, strongest ship in the world—called, in fact, the 'unsinkable' ship—should have been lost during its maiden voyage is so incredible that, had it not actually happened, no author would have dared to contrive it.
"It is not an exaggeration to state that the 19th Century, with its social stricture, its extravagant codes of honor and sacrifice, and its unswerving belief that God favored the rich, ended that night."
This description is from Peter Stone, the Tony-winning author of Titanic: The Musical's book.
Nominated for five Tony's, it won five: Best Musical, Best Original Score (Maury Yeston), Best Scenic Design (Stewart Laing), and Best Orchestration (Jonathan Tunick), as well as Stone's award for Best Book.
Local actor/theatre educator Jarrod Yuskauskas will take on the role of "Thomas Andrews", the designer of the ill-fated ocean liner. He will also be featured in our production of Footloose as
"Rev. Shaw Moore".
