Broadway Revival of Titanic Will Stay Docked a Little While Longer
The musical revival will no longer meet its goal for a fall 2014 opening.
Previously announced plans for a Broadway revival of Maury Yeston and Peter Stone's Tony-winning musical Titanic have been indefinitely postponed, according to representatives of the production.
In January, producers Barry and Fran Weissler and David Mirvish announced their intentions for a revival to set sail on the Great White Way in fall 2014, but they have been forced to delay their timeline due to the lack of an available Broadway house. The producers have said that revised plans will be announced as soon as scheduling allows.
Titanic, which follows the ill-fated journey of the famous British passenger liner, made its Broadway debut in 1997. The production earned a total of five Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score.
The revival was set to be directed by Thom Southerland, who helmed an acclaimed, revival at London's Southwark Playhouse in 2013. As previously reported, the production is slated to play a summertime run at Toronto's Royal Alexandra Theatre from July 22-August 31.
