Producers of Titanique: In Concert have announced that actor, singer, and television personality Frankie J. Grande (Big Brother) will join the cast of the musical parody of the 1997 hit film Titanic. Featuring the songs of pop icon Celine Dion, Grande will play Victor Garber for the show's New York engagement this summer at the Green Room 42. Titanique: In Concert, originally scheduled for a three-performance run August 25–27, has also announced two additional shows to its engagement.

In Titanique: In Concert, Celine Dion casually rewrites history by recounting her interpretation of what happened aboard the Titanic. Backed by a full band and musical arrangements of such hits as "My Heart Will Go On," "Power of Love," "It's All Coming Back to Me Now," "Because You Loved Me," and "I'm Alive," the previously announced quick-witted cast features Broadway favorites Marla Mindelle (Sister Act) as Dion, Constantine Rousouli (Wicked) as Jack Dawson, and Alex Ellis (Thoroughly Modern Millie) as Rose DeWitt Bukater, alongside Emmy nominee Stephen Guarino (Showtime's I'm Dying Up Here), Sebastian La Cause (The Rocky Horror Show), Kathy Deitch (Wicked), Adam Zelasko (Jersey Boys), Mikhail Thompson, and Leah Hall.

Direct from a run of four sold-out concerts in Los Angeles, Titanique: In Concert is produced and directed by Tye Blue (Rumer Willis' Over the Love Tour) with musical direction and arrangements by Independent Reviewers of New England Award winner Nicholas Connell, and cowritten by Marla Mindelle, Constantine Rousouli, and Tye Blue.
