(Michael Sommers’s article appeared in The New York Times, 4/6.)

AS the Titanic sailed toward its destiny on a Sunday afternoon a century ago this month, passengers in first class listened to the band play fox trots and waltzes as they lunched on egg à l’Argenteuil, prepared with asparagus.

Some of their experiences during the tragic night that followed, the ragtime tunes they heard and even much of the final luncheon menu will be re-created when “100 Years: Titanic Survivors and Their Stories” is staged on April 15, the anniversary of the disaster, at the Arts and Community Center on the campus of Ocean County College in Toms River.
