Theatre Under the Stars

Jul 8, 2012

You've seen it on the big screen, now experience it live. For their 66th Season, Theatre Under the Stars is bringing the Tony Award-winning Titanic: A new Musical to the Malkin Bowl. 100 years after that disastrous maiden voyage, the epic event has become a musical in the hands of composer Maury Yeston and librettist Peter Stone. For those after some  zanier adventures, the award-winning Broadway classic The Music Man will play alternating nights.
