|Legally Blonde, the Musical and Burn the Floor to Headline Next Norwegian Cruise Ship|
(4:30 p.m. EDT) -- Legally Blonde, the Musical, along with a Latin version of Burn the Floor will headline Norwegian Getaway when it debuts January 2014, Kevin Sheehan, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line announced during a press conference onboard Norwegian Breakaway. Sheehan also revealed that Howl at the Moon will return and introduced a new standup comedy program from Levity Entertainment.
Describing Legally Blonde, the Musical as a "cutesy, real fun play," Sheehan said bringing the seven-time Tony Award nominated musical to the ship proves that Broadway production companies now consider cruise ships a viable outlet for their plays.
Burn the Floor, another Broadway show, which debuted on Norwegian Breakaway, also will headline Getaway. But in keeping with the Miami flavor of the ship, the show will take on a Latin vibe.
Replacing Second City on Getaway will be 12 comedy shows from Levity Entertainment, which has produced live comedy acts from Bill Cosby, Jeff Dunham, Daniel Tosh and others worldwide.
Returning on Norwegian Getaway will be the popular Howl at the Moon dueling piano act, as well as a variety of Nickelodeon-themed activities and shows.
Another detail Sheehan let drop during the press conference was the smaller number of solo cabins on Getaway, similar in number to what is on Breakaway. But he said that all ships the company builds going forward will most likely have a larger number of solo cabins.
Currently under construction at Meyer Werft in Germany, Norwegian Getaway will be the largest ship to homeport in Miami when it debuts January 2014. Previously revealed ship details include hull art work from David "LEBO" Le Batard, three Geoffrey Zakarian restaurants, a GRAMMY Experience at Sea and The Illusionarium, a special effects-laden illusion and magic show.
