Titanic, Maury Yeston and Peter Stone's Tony Award-winning musical about the ill-fated voyage of the so-called unsinkable ship in 1912, is expected to return to Broadway this fall in a revival produced by Barry and Fran Weissler and David Mirvish.

The musical will be directed by Thom Southerland, who helmed an acclaimed, revival at London's Southwark Playhouse in 2013. The production will play a summertime run at Toronto's Royal Alexandra Theatre from July 22-August 31. No other information has yet been announced.

Yeston and Stone won a 1997 Tony for their work on Titanic, which played over 800 performances at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre and also won top honors for Best Musical. The original cast, led by Michael Cerveris, Brian d'Arcy James, Victoria Clark, and David Garrison, will reunite for an unrelated concert in February at Avery Fisher Hall.
