It's hard to believe that a play about a horrific tragedy could make for a fun outing, but Titanic: The Fated Voyage pulls it off. It's a lively piece of theatre that deals right off with the sinking, and then flashes back to acquaint the audience with an interesting bunch of characters who come together in the fine dining room of the great ship. The story itself focuses on class divisions, and the while the device used to bring the classes together seems unlikely at first, it proves to be very clever in the end. Much of the story is told through a wide variety of music from the period, and the nine actors who play a mixture of third and first class passengers are all talented singers. When you add in a truly delicious buffet and some fun interactions with the cast, it becomes a memorable evening about a memorable event.
