TITANIC – Charing Cross Theatre

In London theatre, Musicals, Opinion by Matt MerrittLeave a Comment

Can I start with a confession? I never really “got” Titanic… Sure, Maury Yeston’s music and Peter Stone’s book had the requisite bombast, but I’d never seen much evidence of the heart.

TITANIC – Charing Cross Theatre

Unlike its ill-fated namesake, Thom Southerland’s production of Titanic has now made a triumphant trans-Atlantic return crossing, tying up at London’s Charing Cross Theatre for a ten-week season. Acclaimed at the Southwark Playhouse three years ago and later in Toronto, this riverside reprise marks Southerland’s debut as Artistic Director at Charing Cross, with his long-time muse Danielle Tarento also on board as co-producer.
