The Milwaukee Repertory Theater’s production of Titanic: The Musical is back! Last week, The Rep was forced to cancel two weeks of nearly sold-out performances due to COVID cases among the cast – racking up a potential loss of more than $255,000 in revenue and concessions – and 10,000 ticket holders were issued automatic refunds.
Even with understudies and swing performers, The Rep had to cancel 15 out of 49 total shows due to the COVID outbreak, about a third of the production’s total run. On Wednesday, The Rep announced that it will be bringing the production back from Sept. 20-Oct. 23, as part of its 2022-23 season.
“The decision to cancel this year’s run of Titanic was gut wrenching for our artists and patrons alike,” Artistic Director Mark Clements said in a press release. “We are grateful to our staff and artists as their resiliency and commitment to showcase world class work in this turbulent environment remains undeterred.”
