One of the most exciting events on #SethsBwayCruise is the final variety show. Not only do the celebrities sing duets and trios that they've never performed together before (Rebecca Luker, Kerry Butler and Faith Prince played the strippers in "You Gotta Get A Gimmick") but the passengers star in production numbers alongside the stars! Throughout the cruise, Seth rehearses with the passengers, and on the last night, they join the stars onstage.

Below is Tony winner Rachel Bay Jones and Tony nominees Christopher Fitzgerald and Liz Callaway joining #SethsBwayCruise passengers performing "What The World Needs Now Is Love."

After the Pulse Nightclub shooting, James and Seth gathered a bunch of Broadway stars to record the song (which went to No. 1 on iTunes) as a fundraiser for the victims and their families (raising over $100,000).

Here is #SethsBwayCruise singing to the original orchestral tracks during the final variety show.


SiriusXM Broadway host Seth Rudetsky (dubbed "The Mayor of Broadway" by Audra McDonald), has teamed up with cruise travel expert Judy Perl to create Seth's Big Fat Broadway Vacations, a new line of Broadway-themed cruises.
