NEW YORK, N.Y. - You just can't keep the "Titanic" down for long.

Producers of the ambitious musical retelling of the famous 1912 sea tragedy said Thursday a revival will be steaming back to Broadway in the fall 2014, following a tune-up in Toronto over the summer.

It will be directed by Thom Southerland. The rest of the creative team, casting and dates will be announced later.

The musical tells the story of the ship's ill-fated maiden voyage and encounter with an iceberg in the Atlantic. The show, which has a score by Maury Yeston and a book by Peter Stone, focuses on the vessel's passengers in first-class, second-class and steerage.

It won Tonys in 1997 for best musical, best score, best sets and book of a musical, and lasted over 800 performances.
