What will be next Broadway show

Recommended Posts

Wondering what broadway shows will be announced for Quantum or Anthem or new Oasis ships?

I don't know, but expect Broadway shows for all of those ships and probably every new ship from now on. Rumors I have heard for Quantum is Wicked. I don't know the exact procedure for selecting an at sea Broadway show. Currently, the shows being performed have closed on Broadway or are on a revival schedule. Not shows that are fresh on Broadway, but shows that have a good following.

If it's Wicked, I'm booking a sailing tomorrow on Quantum.

 

I'd love to see RENT, but it's too riskay.

 

West Side Story could be deemed "inappropriate" too.

I think Wicked would be awesome because #1 it is a great show and #2 Kristen is the Godmother. Hello, what a perfect combo. Royal could get her to guest star in the show for the first few weeks. It would be perfect. Even if it isn't Wicked, I still think Royal should really try and snag that show for one of their ships!

My wife would be all about Quantum if Wicked was the show they had onboard

Mine too. I wouldn't be surprised if Royal announced "Shrek - The Musical" as one of their onboard Broadway shows on an upcoming new ship.

Oh God, please no. Besides, the kids aren't even necessarily up that late! At least not the kids that would thoroughly enjoy it...

Well I'm just guessing with Royal's partnership w/ Dreamworks. It seems like logical thing to happen.

I would love to see Kristen play Madame Morrible.  I think she is a bit too old to play Galinda (with a “Ga”). No disrespect.

I would love Newsies, saw it at the Muny in STL a couple of years ago. Alas, it's owned by Disney, but LOVE that musical!

Acutal "Broadway" shows are the following:

Oasis - Cats

Allure - Mama Mia

Harmony/Indy - Grease

Symphony - Hairspray

Liberty - Saturday Night Fever

Anthem - We Will Rock You

The rest are Royal Caribbean Original Productions.  Not official Broadway shows.  I am also unsure if Ovation has anything?

Ovation had "The Dream" when I was on it last September.  I think it was an original Royal production. They also had "Live, Love, Legs"

The Dream is most definitely not a Broadway production.  I heard from a Genie that it is the sequel to The Gift...😬

Anthem.  It's a Royal Caribbean Original production.

I had the unfortunate experience of seeing it twice. lol

I almost always watch the shows on the ships twice (on the same night/sailing) ... I've even seen Pixels three times ... or was that four?

Like Pixels is very similar to Spectra's Cabaret, The Dream is very similar to The Gift. 

Instead of building a new show from scratch they adapted the shows for Ovation from Anthem.  

Empress has Three Sequins and a Feather as it's main show or simply "Three" as they call it on board.  Bailamos is the secondary show.  "Three" is another Showgirl based show similar to Navigator but Empress was better IMO.  Spectrum has a Showgirl show.  This seems to be a recurring pattern whereas ships of old have something from the "Royal Caribbean singers and dancers". 

The question is what will Odyssey get?   Hopefully they'll continue with the space theme from Symphony.  No doubt they'll have a Showgirls type show as well. 

Ovation's "Live, Love, Legs" may have been the start of the Showgirl type shows.  Navigator's "Showgirl! Past. Present. Future" set is similar and no doubt an evolution of "Live, Love, Legs".  Empress being smaller probably doesn't have the stage real estate to accomodate this setup so they adapted it further for a small stage.
