Broadway-themed cruise to sail in 2016

posted in: GayCruises | 0

Broadway performers from shows such as “Wicked,” “Rent,” “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” “The Producers” and “42nd Street” will hit the high seas with Celebrity Cruises.

The themed cruise, titled “Sailing With the Stars,” will embark from Miami on Nov. 5, 2016 and is being put together by Broadway Theatre Cruises, a new company started by Boca Raton’s Mark Keller and Palm Beach Gardens’ Alan Jacobson.

For those who book passage on the seven-night Caribbean cruise on Celebrity Cruises’ newest ship, the Celebrity Reflection, the entertainers will include:

•Lee Roy Reams (“The Producers,” “La Cage aux Folles,” “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast,” “42nd Street”)

•Eden Espinosa (“Wicked,” “Rent,” “Flora the Red Menace”)

•Robert Cuccioli (“Les Miserables,” “Jekyll & Hyde,” “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark”).

“We’re covering the age gamut for the cruise,” says theater producer Jacobson, who also wrote the parody “Waistwatchers the Musical” and ran the Plaza Theatre in Manalapan for two seasons. “Lee Roy is for our seniors. Bob would be for the boomers because he is in his 50s. Eden Espinosa is in her 30s, so she’s part of the newer wave of Broadway stars. Audiences may not be as familiar with some of these people now, but they will be.”
