Opening night: Titanic at Charing Cross Theatre

The musical runs until 6 August 2016

We caught up with cast and creatives, including Rob Houchen and Claire Machin, at the opening of Titanic at Charing Cross Theatre.

Thom Southerland returns to direct alongside the same creative team from the Southwark Playhouse production.

Titanic is the first production in a major season of musicals announced last month by Southerland on his appointment as artistic director of Charing Cross Theatre.

Produced by Danielle Tarento, Steven M. Levy, Sean Sweeney and Vaughan Williams, Maury Yeston and Peter Stone's musical is based on the stories of real people aboard the ill-fated ship. It opened on Broadway in 1997 and won five Tony Awards including Best Musical.

Titanic runs at the Charing Cross Theatre from 28 May – 6 August.
