An Unusual Show

We entered the Illusionarium, an immersive and technologically enhanced dining room, for the Cirque Dreams and Steam show. The show is inspired by Science Fiction, Victorian Fashion, Steampunk & the Industrial Revolution.We were seated by our hostess. Steve had reserved the “floor” seating, as it was billed as closer to the stage. The hostess and […]

Music and Dancing

Burn The Floor is a production on three of the NCL ships, the Getaway, Breakaway and the Epic. We first saw the show on the Breakaway about three years ago. There was little difference between the two shows. In each one, the scenes were disjointed and the sets didn’t change.There were spiraling steel staircases for […]

Murder Among Friends

“Murder Among Friends” begins with a clap of thunder that the audience nearly jumping out of our seats. It was very loud and Morgan Fairchild was on the stage as the lights came up. It is very unusual for New Theatre for the “star” to show up on stage so soon. Morgan Fairchild was perfectly […]

“Oh What A Night”

We really enjoyed the “Oh What a Night” show, a foursome that did two tribute shows based on Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. The four guys who impersonated Frankie Valli’s group were superb, singing many memorable songs from this classic pop group. The range of the voices of two of their singers was incredible, […]

Since Pride of America is such a small ship we did not expect the entertainment to be very much. We were surprised on several nights. The Lights, Camera, Music was an elegant tribute to the greatest moments of the Hollywood Musical. The costumes were wonderful as were the sets and production of the songs. We […]
