Titanic, the Tony Award-winning Best Musical featuring a score by Maury Yeston, played its final Broadway performance March 28, 1999. Here, we look at the work of Yeston, including clips from Titanic, Nine and more.
Yeston won the Tony Award in 1982 for the Best Original Score of Nine and again in 1997 for the Best Original Score of Titanic. He was Tony-nominated for Grand Hotel. He also penned the music for Off-Broadway's Death Takes a Holiday as well as the song cycle December Songs, originally written for Andrea Marcovicci and recently performed by Tony nominee Laura Osnes at 54 Below.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
