Princess Cruises presents a first-of-its-kind cruise industry partnership with the Oscar®, Grammy® and Tony® award-winning composer of Wicked, Godspell and Pippin
– Stephen Schwartz.
A Broadway legend, Schwartz has been casting spells over audiences for decades. And now, exclusively on Princess, Magic to Do takes guests into a whole new realm – a spectacular musical revue paired with mesmerizing on-stage illusions.
Overseeing the creative development for four brand new shows, Schwartz brings together an illustrious team of Broadway talent to support the productions through direction and design. The Magic to Do crew includes: Jim Steinmeyer, a mastermind behind the artistry of magic for the past 25 years; Don Frantz, Associate Producer of The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast on Broadway; and internationally acclaimed director Gabriel Barre, whose credits include the national tour of Pippin, among others.
In this whimsical musical revue, Schwartz weaves a spell-binding story inspired by his lifelong fascination with magic, showcasing some of his most famous songs, including "Day by Day" and "Defying Gravity" along with a new number, "A Little Magic," composed exclusively for Princess. Guided by a Magic Maker and his fantastical assistants, join us through a wondrous world of song, dance and history’s most memorable magic illusions. It’s a Broadway-caliber experience at sea. And where there’s Magic to Do, there can be miracles, when you believe.
"(Magic to Do) elevates the line’s entertainment to a level it hasn't achieved in some time, appropriate given one of the featured numbers is 'Defying Gravity,' set to wonderful vocals and a double levitation illusion."
