Princess Lands Showbiz Legend

Cruise News – Mar. 13, 2015

The legendary composer Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin and Godspell) will soon have shows on Princess Cruises ships.

Schwartz will create four new musicals to debut across the Princess fleet over the next several years, the line announced at an event on Broadway (of course).

This is serious stuff. Schwartz is the only songwriter in Broadway history to have three shows run more than 1,900 performances. He’s won Oscars and Grammys and been nominated six times for Tony Awards.

Schwartz’s first musical for Princess is called Magic to Do, a reference to the opening song in Pippin. The show will combine famous Schwartz songs, magic and a new song written exclusively for Princess, and will debut on Crown Princess this fall.

The idea of the partnership is creating “memorable entertainment experiences” for Princess Cruises passengers, said the line’s president Jan Swartz.

Broadway talent will be involved in the productions.
