There are many stories interwoven into TITANIC The Musical of the ship’s actual passengers. Three of the pivotal characters are Captain Smith, J. Bruce Ismay (owner of the White Star Line), and Thomas Andrews (the ship’s builder). We are delighted to feature Michael Haws, Alan Ball, and Andrew Tighe in these roles. Their collective song entitled “The Blame” sung as the reality of the ship’s fate sets in is among the show’s most dramatic moments as they point fingers and ask each other “what if” a series of things had been done differently by each of them.
Michael Haws has been featured many times on The Fireside stage, most recently as Mayor Shinn in THE MUSIC MAN, General Waverly in WHITE CHRISTMAS, and the Wizard in THE WIZARD OF OZ. He has also worked at other top Regional theatres throughout the Midwest including Marriott Lincolnshire, Drury Lane, and Beef & Boards.
Alan Ball is best remembered by Fireside audiences for his recent portrayals of Grandpa in GRUMPY OLD MEN and Alfie Doolittle in MY FAIR LADY. His 40 plus years as an actor/singer have taken him to all 50 states and over 30 countries around the world.
Andrew Tighe is making his Fireside debut with this show. He recently lead the first ever Off-Broadway revival of A CLASS ACT. His New York and Regional credits include leading roles in CABARET, A CHRISTMAS CAROL, and THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE.
