"The musical Titanic stands as a powerful testament to one of history's most tragic events. With its factual basis and lush, operatic score, the musical brings the story of the sinking of the RMS Titanic to life in a poignant and emotionally resonating manner. Hale Centre Theatre's production may take a more minimalistic approach compared to other productions I've seen, including on Broadway, where they had a three-level set and areas of the stage that tilted to 45 degrees, but it still manages to deliver a moving and emotional journey. With an exceptional cast and some of the most stirring vocals I've heard in years, Hale's production effectively captures the hopes, dreams and fears of the passengers and crew aboard the ill-fated ship."  - Gil Benbrook, (click here to read the complete review)

"With Hale Centre Theatre and a forum that possesses no set or backdrops in the traditional sense, focus on the performers is even more concentrated, and it works incredibly well. Director Cambrian James has presented a unique retelling of the horrific event that occurred on April 15, 1912, when the RMS Titanic on its maiden voyage hit an iceberg and sank in the middle of the’s in the mind of the audience where the full horrors of an enormous passenger ship, a floating city considered unsinkable, happens...the reality of what is happening is conjured in an audience’s mind by the behavior, the panicked dialog, and the superb singing voices of the large ensemble."  - David Appleford, Broadway World (click here to read the complete review)
