What's on Stage had this to say about this new venture, the line-up for which, in addition to Lee, is currently:
- Michael Ball
- Beverley Knight
- Christina Bianco
- Sophie Evans
- John Owen Jones
- Showstopper : The Improvised Musical
The festival at sea concept is not a new one - P&O have been offering classical and opera themed festivals for a number of years - but this venture into the musical theatre genre is breaking new ground... er, waves! The festival follows the familiar format of its land-based cousins with multiple 'stages' (hence the name!) and Lee will be on board throughout, with his own headline show during the voyage as well as being involved in other events. There will be a full programme of musical theatre activities to enjoy on board, including musical workshops, Q&As and a Masquerade Ball theme night.
I was going to say that as his first professional job was singing on the Pride of Bilbao, this is full-circle for Lee, but this latest adventure on the high seas is so far removed from that Portsmouth to Bilbao cruise ferry, that if it brings him back to the beginning it must be in an alternative universe!
The cruise is now on sale and you can find full information on all the booking options available on the Floating Festivals website.
