Crystal Cruises brings award-winning talent from the Great White Way to its stages.
Building on the tremendous feedback and enthusiasm from its guests, Crystal Cruises is announcing 20 new “Crystal on Broadway” theme cruises to its 2020 voyage line-up. On ten worldwide sailings each, Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity will welcome to their stages Broadway stars, and on some occasions, choreographers, directors, costume designers and other talented artists and professionals from Broadway. The programming is presented through Crystal’s exclusive partnership with multi-Tony Award-winning producer Kevin McCollum, whose more than 25-year career in stage and theatre includes credits for Rent, Motown: The Musical, West Side Story, In the Heights, Something Rotten! and the upcoming stage musical adaptations of Mrs. Doubtfire and The Devil Wears Prada. McCollum and his creative team debuted two original songs from Mrs. Doubtfire aboard Crystal Serenity earlier this year.
“The calibre of talent and star power featured on Crystal on Broadway voyages is truly impressive and we are happy to offer guests the world-class entertainment of Broadway no matter where in the world they are,” said Keith Cox, Crystal’s vice president of entertainment. “The performers and insiders that grace our stages for these programmes are true experts in their field, with stories and perspectives that are as entertaining as their performances and presentations.”
During the Crystal on Broadway voyages, guests are treated to varied selections of elaborate stage productions, solo acts, Q&A sessions and entertaining presentations from special guests. The programming perfectly complements Crystal’s own marquee of show-stopping productions. Crystal on Broadway, The Show, featuring songs from the hit musicals Rent, Something Rotten! and West Side Story, debuted aboard both ships following their recent redesigns, while intimate piano performances in Avenue Saloon, dancing and music in the Stardust and Starlite clubs and an array of vocalists, string musicians and pianists in The Cove offer guests an abundance of choices each evening.
