Norwegian Getaway to feature wine musical at lunch

Norwegian Getaway to feature wine musical at lunch

By Tom Stieghorst

Norwegian Cruise Line said its Getaway ship, launching in January, will feature the lunch show "Wine Lovers: The Musical," which combines a wine tasting, lunch and musical comedy.

The plot of the musical involves two mismatched students attending a wine class led by an “effervescent” teacher. Audience members will sample six wines over the course of lunch, which will cost $25 and be available twice on a seven-day cruise in the Illusionarium Theater.

The show currently plays on the Norwegian Pearl. It is directed by Holly-Anne Ruggiero, whose Broadway credits include "Jersey Boys" and Billy Crystal’s "700 Sundays," Norwegian said.
