Before the movie, the musical Titanic captured the story of the ill-fated maiden voyage and offered glimpses into the lives of some of its passengers. Compelling and beautiful, powerful and poignant, the tale of this wonder of the sea lives on. Don’t miss the boat.

The true love story of Isador and Ida Straus: some of the wealthiest passengers aboard the Titanic, they owned Macy’s (yes, Macy’s). Their story was documented by eyewitness including Ida’s maid and a work colleague. The couple’s great grandson and historian Paul Kurzman said, “Ida climbed back out of the boat and turned to her beloved husband. She told him, "We have lived a wonderful life together for 40 years and have six beautiful children together, if you won't get on the life boat, I won't either."
Ida then proceeded to give her mink coat to her maid as she had no more need for it. “Isador wrapped his arms around her," says Kurzman. "Then, a great wave came over the port side of the ship and swept them both into the sea. That was the last time they were seen alive."”
This incredible love story was portrayed in the 1997 movie “Titanic” and also in Titanic: The Musical. Mark Walek and Michele Groneck play the immortalized lovers. The original story appeared in the Denver Post April 19, 1912.
