When the music of Céline Dion makes sweet Canadian love with the eleven-time Oscar®-winning film Titanic, you get Titanique, a musical celebration that turns one of the greatest love stories of all time into a hysterical and joyful slay-fest. Want to find out what really happened to Jack and Rose on that fateful night? Just leave it to Céline Dion to casually hijack a Titanic Museum tour and enchant the audience with her totally wild take, recharting the course of Titanic’s beloved moments and characters with her iconic song catalog. A one-of-a-kind musical voyage bursting with nostalgia, hilarity and heart, Titanique 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.

After extending twice due to popular demand, the musical announced a transfer to The Daryl Roth Theatre following its final performance at the Asylum on November 13.

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!” 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!” Upon the show’s Off-Broadway premiere in 2022, The New York Times praised the musical as, “very funny! This ‘Titanique’ Musical Finds Its Sea Legs…. Near, far, wherever you are, Celine Dion will be there, in this camp reimagining of the maritime blockbuster that revs up into increasing absurdity.” Rachel Handler of Vulture wrote, “Titanique is f*cking great. Swim, Don’t Walk, to see this Celine Dion jukebox fantasia!” People Magazine declared the show “Hilarious! Titanique is the funniest musical playing in New York City right now! This laugh-out-loud parody breathes joyful comedy into the love story of the film.”
