"Entertainment is one of the most uplifting ways to connect with people, whether you're on stage or in the audience," said Norwegian Cruise Line Senior Vice President of Entertainment and Cruise Programming Richard Ambrose. "It brings us together, broadens our horizons and for a moment in time, it lets us forget our worries. While we haven't been able to connect with our guests, cast and crew during this extraordinary time, we wanted to deliver our friends at home an intimate showcase of some of our top productions across our fleet, while also offering this marquis of talent a stage to share their musical gifts with viewers around the world."
