Produced by Sarah Melissa Rotker in association with Josh Wellman, the event will be held in NYSEC's 800-seat Concert Hall. Original cast member Martin Moran will re-create his Drama League Award-winning performance as wireless operator Harold Bride; additional casting will be announced shortly.

Producer Rotker stated, "The New York Society for Ethical Culture holds a special place in the social history of New York City, and Titanic is the perfect vehicle to raise money for this important institution. With its issues of class and the human costs of industrialization, I can't think of a more relevant show at this point in our history."

Titanic won 1997 Tony Awards for Best Book of a Musical (Peter Stone), Best Musical, Best Orchestrations (Jonathan Tunick), Best Score (Maury Yeston) and Best Lighting Design (Stewart Laing).

Concert tickets, priced $15-$20, will be available beginning April 19. Tickets for the VIP post-show wine and dessert reception range from $50-$75 and will soon be available at www.SEC-Titanic.com. All proceeds benefit the New York Society for Ethical Culture in celebration of its 2010 Building Centennial.
