A one-of-a-kind musical voyage bursting with nostalgia, hilarity and heart, Titanique: The Maiden Voyage Concert features powerhouse voices in show-stopping performances of such hits as “My Heart Will Go On,” “All By Myself”, and “To Love You More,” backed by the unparalleled energy of a full live band.

Titanique’s storied history includes a smash hit live-streamed concert – Titanique: The Maiden Voyage Concert on the premium streaming service Stellar, on May 2, 2021, as well as sold-out pop-up concert engagements in Los Angeles and New York, which earned the show a 2019 BroadwayWorld Cabaret Award and had BuzzFeed praising Titanique as “a hilarious spin on the Oscar-winning film” and “a musical you can’t miss.” With “hysterical show-stopping musical numbers that had the audience on their feet…this ‘musical shit show’ is full of Céline Dion numbers and pop cultural references that bring joy and laughter!”
On Logo Network, legendary Village Voice writer Michael Musto declared “You’ll Love Titanique! The musicality is superb. This cast is as adept at belting Céline songs as they are at funny Carol-Burnett-Show-but-dirtier shtick. The sizzling Mindelle knows every Céline swoop—and the jokes never hit an iceberg either!”
