Titanic Tales: Stories of Courage and Cowardice
(World Premiere)

Target Free Thursdays
David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center

Titanic Tales: Stories of Courage and Cowardice will have its world premiere on Thursday, April 12 a date on which, 100 years ago, the RMS Titanic was mid-voyage on its way to its fateful encounter with an iceberg. Titanic Tales is part theatre, part concert, part history. Poignant firsthand accounts illustrate how great danger can bring out the best -- and sometimes the worst -- in people. The remarkable testimony of actual survivors (taken from testimony given at the US and British Inquiries) is evocatively complemented by live music as played by the ship's legendary band. A blend of popular song, light classics and ragtime conjure the atmosphere and elegance of life aboard the ship.
