Last year, we got all revved up about Speed the Movie the Play, but when it comes to comical stage interpretations of famous '90s films, it seems that was just the beginning. And while there'll sadly be no blank-faced Keanu driving a bus, this year's Brisbane Comedy Festival will take on the tragic romance of Kate and Leo (as well as the just-as-tragic collision of a boat and some frozen water).
Yes, your heart will go on as two lovestruck ship-dwellers attempt to overcome their different backgrounds, ignore any rules about getting hot and steamy in someone else's car, and try to avoid a pesky iceberg. And chances are you'll still laugh along — even though you know how it all turns out. Actually, maybe you don't; if anyone was going to work in Winslet's recent revelation that there was actually room for DiCaprio on the door that proved so pivotal to the movie's final scenes, it's this spirited bunch.
Titanic the Movie the Play is one of our top ten picks to see at the Brisbane Comedy Festival.
