News: New York’s Multi Award-Winning musical comedy Titanique to dock in the West End

Producers Eva Price & Michael Harrison today announced plans for New York’s ‘must-sea’ musical comedy, Titanique, to dock in London.

When the music of Celine Dion makes sweet Canadian love with the eleven-time Oscar®-winning blockbuster film Titanic, you get Titanique, off Broadway’s most award-winning splash hit that turns one of the greatest love stories of all time into a hysterical musical fantasia.

Titanique has taken New York by storm – extending multiple times since its premiere in 2022, it has also been recognised with critical acclaim and multiple awards. Now it is coming to the UK.

Venue and performance dates will be announced at a later date.

Want to find out what really happened to Jack and Rose on that fateful night? Just leave it to Celine Dion to enchant the audience with her totally wild take, recharting the course of Titanic’s beloved moments and characters with her iconic song catalogue. Sailing on fierce powerhouse voices in show-stopping performances of such hits as My Heart Will Go On, All by Myself and To Love you More – backed by a full live band – Titanique is a one-of-a-kind theatrical voyage bursting with nostalgia, heart and campy chaos.

Co-written by Tye Blue, Marla Mindelle and Constantine Rousouli, Titanique celebrated its Off-Broadway premiere in June 2022 at Asylum Theater and after several sold-out extensions, the musical transferred to the Daryl Roth Theatre on November 20, 2022.

Producer Eva Price said: “It has been thrilling to produce Titanique in New York these last two years. The show delivers a balm to the soul; it really is a gift to audiences – near, far, wherever they are. This hilarious new musical has been bringing so much joy to New Yorkers that its time to dock our ship of dreams in international waters. I am thrilled Londoners will soon experience the unhinged delight that Titanique brings night after night to Americans.”

Titanique is directed by Tye Blue (RuPaul’s Drag Race), and choreographed by Ellenore Scott (Funny Girl, Little Shop of Horrors). Music Supervision, Arrangements and Orchestrations are by IRNE Award-Winner Nicholas James Connell.

Titanique won seven major awards during the 2022/23 theatre season, including three Lucille Lortel Awards, the Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best New Musical, Las Culturistas’ Culture Award for Best Indoor Performance and two Dorian Awards.
