Crystal on Broadway, offered on Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity voyages, will feature 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 theater 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.
