The show will play Toronto’s Royal Alexandria Theatre from July 22 to Aug. 31 and then sail onto Broadway in the fall of 2014. Dates, cast, and a theater are to be announced. This revival will be directed by Thom Southerland, who staged a critically-hailed, small-scale production of the show at London’s Southwark Playhouse in 2013.

Titanic features a score by Maury Yeston (Nine) and a book by Peter Stone (1776, Woman of the Year). The original Broadway production was greeted with mixed reviews when it opened in 1997 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, but positive word of mouth bolstered its box office. It won five Tony Awards including Best Musical and went on to a run of 805 performances. The original cast included future Tony winners Michael Cerveris (Assassins) and Victoria Clarke (The Light in the Piazza) as well as David Garrison (Married with Children), Brian d’Arcy James (Shrek, Smash), and Becky Ann Baker (Good People). They will reunite for an unrelated concert rendition of the show at Avery Fisher Hall in February.
