So Titanic musicals and (proposed) replicas are a new thing, right?
Wrong.
Ponder and consider the following from Walter Lord's "The Night Lives On", chapter 1, "Unsinkable Subject." Both of which can be found on page 4:

'No story is too farfetched, as long as it bears the magic label "Titanic." In London The Times recently reported that a Los Angeles businessman planned to build three replicas of the Titanic for 1.5 billion. Each would accomodate 600 passengers at $1,000 a day.'


'In 1976 she (the Titanic) was the subject of an opera jointly produced by the Berlin Opera and the UCLA Fine Arts Productions.'

The more things change, the more they stay the same.
