Crystal Cruises Announces Barbara Streisand-Themed Film and Theatre Cruise

Crystal Cruises has announced the roster of performances on the Crystal Symphony Film & Theatre Festival sailing inspired by Barbara Streisand.

Guests can enjoy a combination of film and musical performances by seasoned veterans. Cruise goers can even go behind the scenes of the production process. Performing as Streisand will be leading tribute artist Sharon Owens.

In addition to Owens’ performances and hosted receptions, multiple other Broadway and Hollywood stars will be making appearances. Tony-nominated actress Lainie Kazan, who was Streisand’s understudy in Funny Girl on Broadway, will give presentations, while Oscar-, Grammy-, and Golden Globe-nominated songwriters Allan Rich and Jud Friedman, both of whom have worked with Streisand, will talk about scoring movies for the silver screen. Red carpet stylists will offer tips; costume designers will share their collections; and special screenings of Streisand’s hits will air in the Hollywood Theatre

The 19-day “Panama Canal Adventure” sailing departs Los Angeles for New York on April 30, 2017, calling in Puerto Vallarta and Huatulco, Mexico; San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua; Panama City, Panama (and transits the Panama Canal); Cartagena, Colombia; and Charleston, South Carolina. All-inclusive fares begin at $5,995 per person.
