Jamaica is a musical with a book by Yip Harburg and Fred Saidy, lyrics by Harburg, and music by Harold Arlen. Harburg was blacklisted in Hollywood at the time of the writing of the musical. Set on a small island off the coast of Jamaica, the musical tells about a simple island community fighting to avoid being overrun by American commercialism.



Arlen's music parodies the popular form of Calypso, which was in vogue in the 1950s, largely as a result of the popularity of Harry Belafonte, for whom the musical was originally written. Belafonte withdrew from the production due to illness, and the musical was then tailored around the talents of Lena Horne.

Proving in the most definitive way that one need not abandon a regular fitness routine while on vacation - even a luxury vacation at sea - Crystal Cruises has set a comprehensive lineup of health and fitness experts for its December 6 Mind, Body & Spirit theme cruise. Aboard the 14-day Crystal Serenity sailing from New Orleans to Miami, world renowned extreme runner Dane Rauschenberg will complete a full marathon on the award-winning ship on December 11, 2016 while cruising the Caribbean Sea. A 26.2-mile feat that translates to approximately 96 laps around the 360-degree Promenade Deck. Once completed, Rauschenberg will be the first to run a marathon at sea. The challenge is the latest in Rauschenberg's long career as a long-distance runner, which has seen him complete 52 marathons in 52 consecutive weekends, as well as a 350-mile run up the coast of his native Oregon and a 202-mile relay, solo. Noted as a powerful, passionate and engaging speaker, Rauschenberg will share tales and experiences from his colorful career during presentations in Crystal Serenity's posh lounges and theaters.
