“The Secret Silk” Premieres on Princess Cruise Line

You may not know his name, but Stephen Schwartz is the Oscar-, Grammy- and Tony Award-winning composer of “Wicked,” “Godspell,” and “Pippin.” However, if you’re looking to see what he’s been doing lately, you’ll be far from Broadway.   Mr. Schwartz has taken his genius to the high seas collaborating with Princess Cruises on several projects.  “The Secret Silk” is the third production in the Stephen Schwartz and Princess Cruises relationship.

“The Secret Silk” is adapted from the ancient fable “The Grateful Crane.” The story is about beautiful Lan, a selfless young woman who possesses a magical gift, secretly creating brilliant silk fabrics. To bring this story to life, the production team combined various theatrical elements for an impressive theater experience. The story is told with both actors and life-size puppetry from Jim Henson’s
Creature Shop.

"The Secret Silk" premieres aboard Royal Princess, followed by Island Princess in May 2018 for the Alaska season, and DiamondPrincess in fall 2018.
