Broadway Anchors Away For Ship
BROADWAY MAGAZINE- Women and children first! On March 4, 1999; The New York Times ran an article announcing producers’ intentions to close the musical Titanic
later that month. Costing approximately $10 million, it was one of the most expensive productions in Broadway history at that point.
Guess how much the actual Titanic cost to build?
In 1912 dollars, the actual Titanic cost $7,500,000.17. So, though the Broadway production cost more than the ship…it also lasted longer. Ticket prices were comparable, though the snacks at intermission were more expensive.
