Unlike the boat it's named after, this show truly rose from the bottom. Despite detractors predicting doom before it had even opened, Titanic overcame hectic previews and endless technical problems to win a Tony for best musical and turn into a commercial success. Despite the fact that favorite performers like Judith Blazer or Victoria Clark disappear in the crowd and don't get solos of note, the show still manages to bring to life affecting characters. Maury Yeston's (Grand Hotel) score has the required majesty without ever being turgid, and the choral work he coaxes from his ensemble is eminently powerful. Though it requires a fair amount of attention on the listener's part, Titanic is also surprisingly emotional--its majestic finale packs more punch than 3 hours of Leonardo DiCaprio. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

I saw Titanic live on Broadway, thought it was spectacular, and subsequently purchased the CD.

This is an amazing musical, deserving praise on every front. First and foremost, however -- if you're a serious musician, you will appreciate the score. The orchestration is rich and lush and with many subtle, refreshing touches. The pit orchestra is one of the finest ever, with a brass section that will truly blow you away. In Maury Yeston's hands (or his orchestrator's?), the fabulous brass section breathes life and dignity and excitement into a stellar score. The strings support the score wonderfully, too, as they subtley sing away beneath the cast. The ensemble of the entire pit, including the woodwinds and percussion, is to be commended, and as tight as any "legit" orchestra. Too often the Broadway orchestra is ignored; yet try doing a musical without the orchestra parts. In this case, the score and instrumentalists all but steal the show.

Which is not to downplay the cast, who are fabulous. The singing is wonderful. The songs are beautiful and appropriate and touching, as well as very singable. Yeston has managed to create a score and a book that are heartwarming and heartbreaking without ever being schmaltzy. As many times as I've listened to this CD, I always find my eyes getting slightly misty on nearly every song.

Yestin not only paints a real and inspiring portrait of passengers both imaginary and real; he includes some meaningful concepts as well -- for example, the idea that one anonymous and modest telegraph operator connects all the people in the world, themselves yearning to connect. (What we all want when all is said and done.)

I cannot disagree more strongly with those who have trashed this recording and musical in their reviews.

I was not exactly enthralled with this CD the first time I listened to it, but I gave it another chance, and slowly, I have grown to love it. It's a beautiful story, and I really enjoy how so many different plot strands are woven together so effortlessly, all entwined by the disaster of the ship's sinking. There's a lot of fascinating characters in this, and you would think that the result would be sort of unfocused, but really, the impact of the tragedy hits harder when you realize all these people you have come to love are about to die (well, not all, but some of my favorites! *sniff*) The orchestrations are great, especially in The Night Was Alive and The Blame. The whole score is really inspiring, and some especially great songs are The Night Was Alive (Bride is the best!), Mr. Andrew's Vision, I Must Get On That Ship, The Blame...well, I won't go on, because really they're all good! Some seemed kind of boring to me at first, most especially What a Remarkable Age This Is, but now I really like it. Titanic will grow on you, so buy it! I promise that you will love it. And if you have a chance, see the first national tour when it comes to a theater near you! The touring cast ROCKS!

No kidding. The whole cast sings a Broadway song as the entire ship goes under in this outrageous, incredibly dramatic and stirring Broadway show that succeeds in treating the sinking of the Titanic with respect, without plunging to the depths of creative and real despair. The best musical sections concern communication among the ship's officers; an officer reporting on the ocean's temperment - "No sir, it appears to be a flat calm" ("No Moon") is delivered in a lifeless monotone like a sigh of relief before the iceberg takes their breaths; the frenzied and violent arguing among the ship's commanders and builder as the ship sinks, ("The Blame"), soars in intensity to operatic-like levels of tragedy. The musical also conveys a sense of time and regard for the generation of the Titanic; their hopes, fears, and understanding of their modern world, notably in "Barrett's Song", which delivers a life long passion of a young telegraph operator to the fateful journey. There's a rousing and emotion packed musical theme near the beginning and the end; "Godspeed, Titanic", and "Finale", and a song, "Autumn", taken from a song sheet actually found among the surviving artifacts of the ship, which fits securely and adds a haunting touch of authenticity. In the epilogue finale, the "Autumn" theme plays again in a moving musical interlude paying tribute to the lives lost. One can excuse the few imperfect moments; "Doing The Latest Rag", is a dull and obvious rag dance craze, typical of the 1910s, and particularly uninspired, and "Lady's Maid" is a touching but superficial and cliched 'immigrants coming to America' routine. All in all, it's a remarkable achievement. The CD includes a 43 page booklet with lyrics, pictures, cast and Titanic statistics. "A Night To Remember" the classic 1955 book by Walter Lord, remains the best source of the Titanic story, but this Broadway musical is a Titanic of a different color; a heart-felt, joyfull and tragic plunge to the ocean floor.

Format: Audio CD
This is a phenomenal music of Shakespearean proportions. It amazes me how Stone and Yeston bring to life so many characters on the stage. The musical operates at many levels: the stories about the social classes (immigrants, middle and upper classes), the study of flawed people (the captain's capitulation to the owner's unreasonable commands, Alice's ambitions to climb the social ladder, the ship-builder's megalomaniac dreams, etc.), and an examination of how the ship is a microcosm of the times -- "a floating city" (from "In Every Age"). The music is outstanding. I get goosebumps every time I hear the complex interplay of voices in "The Proposal/The Night Was Alive (Reprise)/Canons." And who couldn't love the beautiful "To be a Captain?" This musical has amazing symmetry, as the earlier, happy numbers reappear toward the end in different, sad settings. [The upbeat "I Must Get on That Ship" (i.e., on the Titanic) becomes unspeakably sad when reprised for the scene when they decide who will get on the lifeboats. And the wonderful "The Night Was Alive (with a Thousand Voices)", about shy McBride's using the telegraph to finally find people he can communicate with, is heartbreakingly sung at the end about the drowning passengers yelling out to the people in the lifeboats. "To Be a Captain," in which the second-in-command ponders his awesome responsibility as acting captain of the ship, later becomes a prayer to God as captain of all of their destinies.] If you're not willing to make some effort and listen carefully and more than once, you may not enjoy the CD. But if you are willing, it repays MANY MANY listenings. It has been my "most listened to" CD for many months.
