In 2013, the Tony-winning musical Titanic made its U.K. debut at the Southwark Playhouse. Thom Southerland's staging was subsequently revived in 2016 at the Charing Cross Theatre and was also seen on tour in Woking, Munich, Mannheim, Cologne, Moscow, and China. Many of the actors from these productions have joined forces for a self-isolated version of "We’ll Meet Tomorrow" from Maury Yeston's Tony-winning score. Watch the performance above.

Titanic was directed by Southerland, with musical staging by Cressida Carré, set and costume design by David Woodhead, lighting design by Howard Hudson, sound design by Andrew Johnson, and musical direction by Mark Aspinall, Jo Cichonska, and Leigh Thompson with casting by Danielle Tarento.
Yeston and Peter Stone's musical, told from the perspective of several characters aboard the fated vessel, won five Tony Awards when it premiered on Broadway in 1997, including Best Musical.
