  • Overview
    Titanic is truly an ensemble production as we see when we are introduced to the crew and voyagers in the first scene. In a series of songs and song fragments, we meet the owner/financier, the captain, the crew, and the passengers; we learn both how the Titanic came to be commissioned, built and provisioned as well as how the various individuals came to be standing on the Southampton dock on April 10, 1912. The scene effectively conveys the broad themes which underscore the show (especially the rigid social class structure in America and abroad and the economics of the time which fueled another major wave of immigration to the United States).
