Is bigger, faster, stronger better? Why did so few survive? Why were most of those who did survive «first-class» passengers? A soaring, lush score by Maury Yeston and a book by Peter Stone pose these questions and more in this Best Musical Tony Award winning, phenomenal rendition of the historic story. A mirror of class-structure in the English-speaking world as well as in the meaning of progress, the star of 'Titanic' is the ship itself — its people, its potential, and its failure amidst God-given optimism.
