Princess raises the curtain on next Stephen Schwartz production

Princess raises the curtain on next Stephen Schwartz production
Princess Cruises' second musical production created in collaboration with Oscar-, Tony- and Grammy-winning composer Stephen Schwartz and his team is 'Born to Dance.' The high-energy show pays tribute to Broadway choreography and is created and directed by Daniel C. Levine. It's scheduled to debut this fall.

'Born to Dance' features memorable songs from 'West Side Story,' 'A Chorus Line,' 'Chicago' and other shows. It pays tribute to many of Broadway's trail-blazing choreographers, including Bob Fosse, Jerome Robbins and Gower Champion. In addition, some of today's hottest choreographers and dancers make virtual appearances through video and multi-media projection, including Tony winners Andy Blankenbuehler ('Hamilton'), Rob Ashford ('Evita') and Karen Ziemba ('Chicago').

Daniel C. Levin has appeared on Broadway and in the Broadway national tours of 'Mamma Mia!,' 'Little Shop of Horrors,' 'Jesus Christ Superstar,' 'Chicago' and 'Les Miserables.' He is also the creator, producer and director of 'Broadway Backstage!,' icurrently touring throughout the United States.

'Born to Dance' premieres aboard Star Princess this fall, followed by Grand Princess and Golden Princess in early 2017.
