Broadway fans, this is the boat of your dreams! You can set sail with musical theater stars like Tony Award-winners Laura Benanti, Kristin Chenoweth, Alan Cumming, and Lena Hall. The maiden voyage of The Broadway Cruise will take place next spring.
The 5-night, roundtrip cruise starts in New York City and heads to Bermuda from March 31 to April 5, 2023. It will also feature Tony-nominees Joshua Henry, Taylor Louderman, and Jeremy Jordan, as well as Broadway favorites Randy Rainbow and Sierra Boggess.
The Broadway Cruise will borrow the Norwegian Gem, which accommodates 2,000 people. Cabin prices start at $1,165 per person.
Intimate And Grand Scale Shows And Cabarets
Producers promise “intimate and grand scale shows and cabarets from Broadway’s coolest talent” as well as “tips and techniques from some of the best and brightest creative talent working today.”
Guests will get to interact with top Broadway performers through unique, rare performances and curated activities, including two 2-hour-long shows with Laura Benanti, a 90-minute solo performance by Kristin Chenoweth followed by an exclusive Q&A open to all guests, and a Randy Rainbow Comedy show.
Behind The Scenes On The Seas
Pull back the curtain and go behind the scenes to gain insight into Broadway stars’ theater life through interviews, activities, and other interactive experiences like Q&A sessions and panels. Tony-nominated scenic designer David Korins will discuss his creative process when designing settings for the stage, and Tony-nominated choreographer Kelly Devine will discuss the art of the dance. Chris Jahnke will serve as music director.
The Broadway Cruise was put on hold because of the pandemic. The CDC issued a no-sail order in March 2020 because of early outbreaks aboard cruise ships. Sailing started up again in June 2021 with new health and safety requirements.
For this cruise, all guests 12 and over, including all of the artists and crew members, must be fully vaccinated and present proof of vaccination to board.
