The Tony-winning Titanic: The Musical is getting a one-off performance featuring the original cast, which includes over 200 singers, alongside the skilled New York Chamber Orchestra. The musical is under the stage direction of Don Stephenson, with music director Kevin Stites ably doing his part.

Don't yet have Valentine's Day plans, dudes? Well, Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall will stage the performance on everyone's favorite forced holiday, February 14.

Manhattan Concert Productions refloats the same score to Titanic, which received Tony Awards for Best Orchestrations and Best Original Score in 1997.

Additions to the cast include Jonathan Brody as John B. Thayer and Scott Burkell as George Widener. You can find the full cast listing here.

After an that initial run in '97, which was received negatively due to technical failure and mishaps, Manhattan Productions is looking not to repeat those incidents--how very meta--with this Titanic this time.

The show starts at 8 p.m. in Avery Fisher Hall. Tickets range from $50-$175 and can be purchased here.

Never one to go spoiling the story here at Classicalite, here's "No Moon/Autumn" from the production's finale.
