The current hit revival of Peter Stone and Maury Yeston's 1997 musical Titanic has extended its booking by one week to 13 August 2016 at the Charing Cross Theatre. The production began performances at the central London venue on 28 May 2016, with an official opening on 6 June, and was previously booking to 6 August.
Produced by Danielle Tarento, Steven M Levy, Sean Sweeney and Vaughn Williams, the production originated at the Southwark Playhouse before transferring for a sell-out season at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto.

The musical follows the true story of the Titanic disaster, which saw the RMS Titanic collide with an iceberg on 14 April 1912 on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York. It was one of the most tragic disasters of the 20th Century, with 1517 men, women and children losing their lives.
Maury Yeston and Peter Stone's musical originally opened on Broadway in 1997 and went on to win the Tony Award for Best new Musical.
The cast for the Charing Cross revival includes Scarlett Courtney, Matthew Crowe, Sion Lloyd, Shane McDaid, Philip Rham, Dudley Rogers, Victoria Serra, Judith Street, David Bardsley, Alistair Barron, Helena Blackman, Scott Cripps, James Gant, Luke George, Douglas Hansell, Rob Houchen, Claire Machin, Jessica Paul, Peter Prentice and Dom Simpson.
The production is designed by David Woodhead, with lighting by Howard Hudson, sound by Andrew Johnson and musical direction by Mark Aspinall.
