Virgin Voyages kicks entertainment up a notch

A recent New York Times article details the highly energetic albeit unexpected performance cruisers will come to find on board the just-launched Scarlet Lady ship from Virgin Voyages. Dubbed the Untitled DanceShowPartyThing, the show by choreographers and Dance Cartel members Ani Taj, Sam Pinkleton and Sunny Min-Sook Hitt is an “exuberant, open-to-all, party-meets-performance” that breaks the mold of Broadway-influenced numbers that typically find their way to cruise ships. The 2,770-passenger ship recently set sail from New York on its inaugural Bahamas cruise on Wednesday, October 6th. “A lot of folks in theater are still like, ‘You’re doing a cruise ship show?’”says Pinkleton. “And it’s like: Yeah, I’m doing a cruise ship show. And you know what? It’s fun, it’s joyous, and a lot of people get to do it as their job.”
