After a successful livestreamed Maiden Voyage Concert in 2021, the new musical spoof on the film Titanic sets sail with a full Off-Broadway production at the Asylum Theatre. Titanique tickets will be available on New York Theatre Guide soon.
What do you get when, as the production itself describes it, "the music of Céline Dion makes sweet Canadian love with the 11-time Oscar-winning film Titanic"? You get the Titanique musical, which is as much a tragic love story as it is an uproarious comedy. In the show, Dion herself (aka an actress playing Dion) interrupts a Titanic Museum tour to share what really happened to Jack and Rose on that fated cruise. Dion incorporates her greatest hits, like "All By Myself," "To Love You More," and of course, "My Heart Will Go On" into her zany take on the classic movie's story.
Tye Blue directs Titanique off Broadway, and he also co-wrote the musical with Marla Mindelle and Constantine Rousouli. The show initially had pop-up concert engagements in Los Angeles and New York, earning Titanique a 2019 BroadwayWorld Cabaret Award. Amid the pandemic, Titanique brought Dion's music to living rooms nationwide with Titanique: The Maiden Voyage Concert, streamed live from New Yorks' Le Poisson Rouge lounge. The summer 2022 run marks the first fully staged production of Titanique in New York and the world.
The 1997 premiere of Titanic made stars of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, who played the roles of the doomed lovers Jack and Rose. The movie's 11 Oscars included Best Picture and Best Director, and it was the first film to gross over $1 billion at the box office.
Feel like the king of the world when you get Titanique tickets.
Tickets to Titanique will be available soon.
