Based on real people aboard the doomed liner in 1912, Maury Yeston and Peter Stone's musical was first staged on Broadway in 1997, shortly before the release of James Cameron's iconic film. It ran for two years and picked up five Tonys, including Best Musical.

Having said that, it's never nice to benefit from someone's misfortune, so I wish @domsimmo_95 a speedy recovery. Best wishes, Dom.— Niall Sheehy (@niallsheehy) May 3, 2016
