Tonight at Carnegie Hall, MCP presents "Broadway Classics," featuring songs from the musical TITANIC. Composer/lyricist Maury Yeston says:

“This was a ship that not only carried dreams – the ship was a dream itself.

“When I set out to write a show, it’s important to me to think, ‘Why is this show important, and what is it going to mean to audiences, not only now, but audiences in the future?’ I hope anybody who walks out of Carnegie Hall after hearing this song, or anything from TITANIC… will find that it’s more relevant than ever— and the dream is still here, and we have to preserve it for those who dream to come.”

How did some of your favorite songs come to be? BroadwayWorld is getting the story behind the song in exclusive interviews from your favorite Broadway composers. Below, watch as Maury Yeston explains how he found the voice of Titanic in writing its opening and closing numbers.

Our hearts are heavy over the loss of Jan Maxwell, a brilliant and elegant theatre great. Ms. Maxwell made her Broadway debut in 1992, as Alaura Kingsley in CITY OF ANGELS. She went on to shine in plays and musicals, earning a Tony Award nomination in all four acting categories (leading and featured actress in a play or musical). RIP, Jan Maxwell.

Maxwell was the beloved star of such Broadway productions as 2011’s Follies, The Royal Family, and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Encores! Hey, Look Me Over! features songs from GEORGE M!, JAMAICA, MILK AND HONEY, and WILDCAT. Jesse Green says:

"[WILDCAT's] big number, which provides the evening’s apt overall title, is as catchy an earworm as Broadway ever produced, and having Carolee Carmello belt it (with assistance from the newcomer Britney Coleman) is a delight."

The Encores! series pulls some oddities out of the American musical trunk and comes up with … an oddity.

Today we honor the great writer Charles Dickens, born on this date 106 years ago. Dickens achieved great literary and popular success, from his first major work (The Pickwick Papers) to his dead last (The Mystery of Edwin Drood).

"Drood," which famously remained unfinished due to the author's untimely passing, found new life (and a satisfying ending) in Rupert Holmes' delightful "Musicale with Dramatic Interludes," THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD.
