Award Winning Musical ‘Top Hat’ to debut on-board Cunard

Luxury cruise line Cunard will launch the musical Top Hat at the Royal Court Theatre exclusively on board Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria beginning this September. The musical will premiere onboard Queen Victoria on 3 September  and Queen Elizabeth 17 September and will be performed exclusively on Cunard ships for the next four years.

Winner of three Laurence Olivier awards including Best New Musical, Top Hat is a romantic comedy set in the 1930’s Hollywood Golden Age and is known for its dazzling costumes and set-design as well as iconic tap dancing. The show is based on RKO’s 1935 motion picture of the same name and features music and lyrics by famed American composer Irving Berlin.

Commenting, Matthew White, the production’s original stage show director, said: “Top Hat perfectly matches the Frank Matcham style theatres on board Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth, which complements this visually outstanding show perfectly.”
