One of the statements in this blog post is a lie. Can you figure out which one?

* Henley Street’s latest production, “The Liar,” has received rave reviews so far.

* The RTCC website, which has been down recently, is back up and has a load of pictures from the 2011 awards event that you probably have not seen.

* As “Titanic 3D” was opening in theaters, a national tour of “Titanic: The Musical” was finalizing its cast.

* New York theater is being overrun by sports-related shows.

* A new Richmond-area theater-related blog has emerged.

* Numerous famous people are planning unlikely new stage productions: David Byrne, formerly of Talking Heads; Kevin Smith, director of “Clerks,” etc.; and Oscar winning actor Robert De Niro.

There is no national tour of "Titanic - The Musical" out on the road. That show sunk a LONG time ago - like in the last decade :)

Ok, what do I win?

I have it on good authority that the plan is for the Ocean Professional Theatre Company production of "Titanic: The Musical" to go out on tour in September. Sorry, Jason!

I whole-heartedly stand corrected, and apologize for my zealous remarks. That being said, let's be clear that this is a "national tour" of a regional production - not a production or remounting of the Broadway version out of New York. It's been almost 15 years since "Titanic" sailed on the great white way, or around the country. Also, the company that's producing tends to produce smaller tours that do not play the larger markets. So the chances that it will come to DC or Richmond are unlikely. I'm usually up to date on the news, but this flew under the radar. Good find, Dave - you learn something new every day!
