Titanic Tales: Stories of Courage and Cowardice

Columbia professor Duncan McCargo and cellist Stephanie Winters add to the storied ship’s musical legacy with this world premiere. The show’s script mines the official testimony survivors gave to U.S. and British authorities. Unlike the 1997 Tony Award–winning musical Titanic or 1964 movie The Unsinkable Molly Brown, this performance incorporates a selection of era-specific popular songs, ragtime tunes and light classical fare, as played by the ship’s band.
