Musical Direction by KEVIN MICHAEL CRIPPS
One hundred years ago in April of 1912, Titanic set sail on its maiden voyage across the Atlantic never to arrive. In the masterful hands of composer Maury Yeston and librettist Peter Stone (the writer whose re-imagining of "Annie Get Your Gun" lit up TUTS' 2008 season), tragedy is transmuted into a riveting and uplifting work of musical theatre. The hopes and dreams of rich and poor, cowards and lion-hearts, lovers and enemies are woven together into a richly-layered tapestry, celebrating the power of the human spirit in the tradition of Les Miserables and Ragtime. Nancy Franklin of the New Yorker wrote of the original Broadway production, "Titanic manages to be grave and entertaining, somber and joyful; little by little you realize that you are in the presence of a genuine addition to American musical theatre."
TITANIC won five Tony Awards on Broadway, including Best Score and Best Musical; TUTS is thrilled to present this exciting show exactly one hundred years after the historic event that inspired it. You won't want to miss this incredible journey of the largest show ever presented under the stars in Stanley Park!

The creative team that delivered last summer's hit Anything Goes takes on another beloved Broadway classic: the story of charming con man Harold Hill, who sets out to scam the townspeople of River City, Iowa by posing as a marching band organizer who will keep their kids out of trouble if they give him money for instruments and uniforms. Unexpectedly, Harold meets his match in prim Marion the librarian...but the course of true love (and deception) never did run smooth, and hilarity ensues, accompanied by a succession of timeless songs, from "Ya Got Trouble" and "Seventy-Six Trombones" to "Gary Indiana" and "Till There Was You" (all from the pen of Meredith Willson).
Like TITANIC, The Music Man is set exactly one hundred years ago in 1912; also like Titanic, it won five Tony Awards during its first Broadway run (50 years ago), including Best Musical. TUTS is excited to bring this delightful, memorable show to Stanley Park this summer.
