Titanic: The Musical

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Book writer Peter Stone, in his liner notes to this original Broadway cast recording of Titanic, explains the approach that he and composer/lyricist Maury Yeston took to the story of the doomed ocean liner. "[S]he will not," he writes of the ship, "serve as merely the background against which fictional, melodramatic narratives are recounted. The central character of our Titanic is the Titanic herself." To say that the ship is the central character is not to say that there are no other characters, of course. In fact, there are 40 cast members. The show won all five of the Tony Awards for which it was nominated, among them best musical and best score, and that score ...

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Book writer Peter Stone, in his liner notes to this original Broadway cast recording of Titanic, explains the approach that he and composer/lyricist Maury Yeston took to the story of the doomed ocean liner. "[S]he will not," he writes of the ship, "serve as merely the background against which fictional, melodramatic narratives are recounted. The central character of our Titanic is the Titanic herself." To say that the ship is the central character is not to say that there are no other characters, of course. In fact, there are 40 cast members. The show won all five of the Tony Awards for which it was nominated, among them best musical and best score, and that score consists mostly of choral numbers that are, not surprisingly, full of hope and enthusiasm in the first act pre-iceberg and full of dread and melancholy in the relatively brief second. That's right, about two-thirds of the music on the disc comes before the ship starts going down. There are a few of those melodramatic narratives Stone abhors, but the writers are much more interested in creating a broad panorama and providing a sociological history lesson: they see the sinking of the ship representing the collapse of class distinctions in the early 20th century. Yeston's music contains smatterings of Gilbert & Sullivan, ragtime, and pop, and for the most part, he is interested in massed voices, which may make this score a boon to high-school choruses everywhere.

    The moving show I've ever seen

    Every time I see this show I end up with goosebumps from start to finish. A heartbreaking, true story which moved me like no other show I've ever seen. Any fan of any style of vocal music needs to own this CD.

    Such a great show!

    Titanic: The Musical is one of my favorite musicals of all time. I have seen the show twice. Both times have touched and moved me. I would recomend this wonderful CD to anyone who is into the musical theatre, or just the Titanic itself. There are a lot of good facts i this show about the real ship. Every character in this show is based on a true person who was on the ship. That is another reason why I love this show so much. ENJOY!

    Amazing

    If you enjoy the musical theatre you'll love this. It's filled with amazing songs. This show keeps Yeston's legacy alive. Everyone should listen to this at least once...all the way through.`
