TITANIC to get Concert Staging at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall

Filed under: Performing Arts — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 01:32


The Tony-Award winning Best Musical TITANIC will get staged in a concert event at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall in 2014. The staging will feature actors who’ve played various roles in the original Broadway production as well as regional stagings of the absolutely fantastic musical over the years. It will also be set to a score performed by the entire New York Chamber Orchestra and will feature a hundred-member chorus that will strengthen some of the ensemble numbers of the show. Manhattan Concert Productions, who staged the lush and spine-chilling concert performance of Ragtime last year is behind the concert staging of TITANIC. Tickets for the show, which is scheduled for the evening of February 17th, will go on sale in September. TITANIC, written by the late Peter Stone with music written by Maury Yeston, won the 1997 Tony Awards for Best Score, Best Orchestrations, Best Book, Best Scenic Design, and Best Musical.
