An all-star roster of award-winning Broadway favorites will set sail on Playbill Travel's upcoming Broadway in Tahiti cruise, exploring the South Pacific with cruise guests by day and performing exclusive, unforgettable concerts by night.
Set for March 28–April 7, 2024, the cruise will welcome Grammy winner and Tony nominee Sara Bareilles, Tony nominee Denée Benton, Tony winner Gavin Creel, Tony nominee Christopher Fitzgerald, SiriusXM On Broadway host Seth Rudetsky, and Grammy- and Emmy Award-winning music director John McDaniel.
This group of performers is keeping it in the family. Bareilles, Benton, and Creel previously shared the stage in the recent revival of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Into the Woods, and Bareilles, Creel, and Fitzgerald have all co-starred in Broadway's Waitress (for which Bareilles also penned the score). Theatre fans also know Benton for her performances in Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 and Hamilton; Creel for his work in Hello, Dolly!, Hair, and Thoroughly Modern Millie; and Fitzgerald for his turns in Young Frankenstein, Finian's Rainbow, and, most recently, Company.
The 11-day cruise on the newly refurbished Paul Gauguin will visit Papeete, Huahine, Motu Mahana, Bora Bora, and Moorea. Travelers will be able to select from a host of exciting excursions, including snorkeling and scuba diving, aquabike adventures, lagoon cruises and Polynesian feasts, Waverunner tours, helicopter tours, glass bottom boat tours, aqua safaris, shark and stringray encounters, catamaran trips, dolphin and whale watching, and more.
But since you'll be travelling with Playbill, back on the boat is where things really get into gear. The ship's all-star roster will be on hand to give once-in-a-lifetime concert performances, accompanied by world class music director McDaniel (The Rosie O'Donnell Show). Rudetsky will offer his hilarious one-man show Deconstructing Broadway.
Cruisers will also enjoy two celebratory gala dinners, welcome and farewell cocktails, complimentary 24-hour room service, complimentary beverages including alcohol, and additional onboard entertainment. The ship features three restaurants, two specialty bars, and an onboard theatre fit for a Broadway legend—or six!
