Some significant footwear will be striding the stage on the Norwegian Encore in 2019.

Norwegian Cruise Line announced the signature show on board will be Tony Award-winning “Kinky Boots,” which features original songs by Cyndi Lauper and is about a partnership between a drag queen and a factory owner.

Norwegian Encore, currently under construction, will begin sailing from Miami in November 2019.

The headlining show that won six Tonys, including best new musical, in 2014, is just one of the of features on the cruise ship that will sail seven-night Eastern Caribbean itineraries.

In addition to “Kinky Boots,” Encore will feature “The Choir of Man,” which features music, dance and foot-stomping percussion. “Happy Hour Prohibition: The Musical” is a cocktail and theater show.

Another entertainment venue will be The Cavern Club, which is themed to The Beatles, including a cover band, and is an homage to the Liverpool club where the Fab Four made a name for themselves.
