Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE ALL-TIME GREAT MUSICALS! Aug. 23 1999
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing tribute to a legend Aug. 29 2000
Format:Audio CD
Being a collector and Titanic enthusiast, I was very skeptical about going to see "Titanic: A New Musical" for fear that it would make a mockery of the real life tragedy. However, if you haven't been fortunate enough to see the stage production, my heart felt condolences go out to you. It is an incredible experience and I highly recommend going if it tours near you (no matter what the ticket price-or how many miles you have to travel) as you won't be disappointed. If you cannot, this cd is a wonderful consolation. This is a respectable and fitting tribute to this undeniable tragedy and you can feel the raw and piercing emotion in each performance. All are beautiful but most exceptional are: GODSPEED TITANIC, LADY'S MAID, THE PROPOSAL/THE NIGHT WAS ALIVE (Brian d'Arcy James is incredible), THE BLAME, and WE'LL MEET TOMORROW.

The first time I listened to this CD, I hated it. The second time, I hated it a little less...the ninth time, I was absolutely blown away. It's true, the music is not always easy or pleasant to listen to, the lyrics seem stupid and awkward. Looking at each part individually, one sees irritating flaws that seem impossible to ignore. But if you let the CD sweep over you as a whole, you end up with a very different picture. It's not about how the songs are objectively, but more how they fit together...and create an amazing experience. You just have to take the chance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does anyone remember TITANIC? Feb. 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
The musical TITANIC went through a tortured preview period and opened to ONE favourable review: The rest were mixed and there were many outright pans. (My review was mixed) Yes, it won the Tony award... the other nominees that year were two flawed but interesting shows (STEEL PIER and THE LIFE) and one long-gone special piece from Lincoln centre Theatre: JUAN DARIEN: A CARNIVAL MASS. STEEL PIER had the best score of the three and the one that has stood up best to repeated listenings. THE LIFE and TITANIC both have their moments. When this CD was first released in 1997 I wrote:
*****
On Broadway TITANIC is another of those musical spectacles: all sets and flashy effects. Somehow the human element of the drama is dwarfed by the physical production, and it is not helped by the uninspired direction. On disc Maury Yeston's score is somewhat erratic. After a rousing opening choral number things get rather dull until near the end of act one. The record has been given a fine audio production. RCA has included a synopsis, color photos and all the lyrics in the booklet. Well worth a listen, but little of the score will linger in your memory afterwards.
*****
Upon re-listening to the CD I agree with all of the above..except the last line. I do find that several numbers do linger after a couple of hearings. And several cabaret artists have picked up on a few of the songs. The show ran 2 years on Broadway then toured. It is now pretty much a forgotten piece. Enough said.

3.0 out of 5 stars I tried... April 24 2002
Format:Audio CD
I really tried to like this CD. I loved Yeston's Nine. But Titanic is nowhere near as good as that show. It does have some wonderful music, but it also has a lot of tedious music. Often they musicalized the wrong things. For example, this was a musical crying out for a big emotional closing number after the actual sinking of the ship, but we don't get it--we get that stupid Epilogue, inappropriately reprising "In Every Age" with no irony whatsoever when circumstances have just shown that such technological achievement can be dangerous.
The lyrics are really bad. Lots of shopping lists (literally) and exposition--as someone pointed out, many of these lines should not have been sung. And I did see the show when it toured through Denver, and yes, there is zero character development, plenty of cliche, and way too many characters. The only real emotion I felt during the show was during the Straus's duet "Still," and that's because I projected their plight onto my parents. (And the touring singers sounded a lot better than the ones on the CD, too.)
By no means a disaster, but very disappointing.

When I first heard that Titanic was being made into a musical, my reaction was "Wow - that's tacky". Once I saw the cast performance at the Tony Awards, however, I got intrigued. Read more

Ok, so the music itself is not terrible, each of them thematically linked. Except the Lady's Maid song, which blows anyways. Read more
