Titanic the Musical, winner of the 1997 Tony Award for Best Musical, will embark on a new tour of the U.K. beginning March 16, 2023, at Bromley's Churchill Theatre.
Thom Southerland, who has directed several productions of the hit musical around the world in the past decade, will again direct. The tour launches 10 years after Southerland's production made its debut at Southwark Playhouse in London.
Titanic will also have set and costume design by David Woodhead, lighting design by Howard Hudson, sound design by Andrew Johnson, musical staging by Cressida Carré, and new musical arrangements by Ian Weinberger. Casting will be announced at a later date.
Following Bromley, the tour will visit Newcastle Theatre Royal, Belfast's Grand Opera House, Southampton's Mayflower Theatre, the Birmingham Hippodrome, Norwich Theatre Royal, Cardiff's New Theatre, Nottingham Theatre Royal, Wycombe Swan, Hull New Theatre, Cheltenham's Everyman Theatre, Edinburgh's Festival Theatre, Dartford's The Orchard Theatre, Salford's The Lowry, and the Sheffield Lyceum.
Danielle Tarento, who produces with Steven M. Levy, and Vaughan Williams, said in a statement, "Steven, Vaughan, and I are so excited that the great ship Titanic is setting sail on a new U.K. tour. I can’t believe that it’s been 10 years since that first production at Southwark Playhouse—it feels like a lifetime ago and only just the other day in equal measure! After the couple of years that we’ve all lived through, to be able to mark this anniversary by revisiting some favorite venues from the last tour and also bringing the show to some new ones feels especially joyful."
