Cruise ship shows generally consist of troupes of talented singers and dancers performing songs from Broadway musicals and other themed productions that might feature medleys of tunes by popular artists. That’s not what you’ll find here aboard Norwegian Epic.
The Epic Theater is quite simply the site of the most spectacular extravaganzas at sea. All the way from Las Vegas, we’ve enjoyed Blue Man Group and Legends in Concert—shows that would command hundreds of dollars for tickets in Vegas and for which there is no additional charge on Norwegian Epic. They weren’t skimpy watered-down versions either..
Blue Man Group is a production that has to be seen to be believed. Creative doesn’t begin to describe it. Each of the three Blue Men is a gifted artist and collectively they are masters of the sideways glance. Without a word being spoken the hilarious show even includes audience participation. I don’t want to give too much away because their antic surprises are the highlight of the show. Some of us who have seen Blue Man Group on land agreed that their show on Norwegian Epic was even better
Although the shows are included in your cruise fare, you do have to make reservations as seating is limited. However, everyone has the opportunity to see each show as there are multiple performances scheduled. Theater doors open about 45 minutes before show time, but you don’t have to get there that early to get a good seat. The Epic Theater doesn’t have a bad seat in the house—there are no columns and the sightlines are unobstructed.
