Among Drescher’s Broadway guests on the cruise will be the Tony-nominated sisters Ann Hampton Callaway and Liz Callaway, Jennifer Simard (Hello, Dolly!), Hunter Ryan Herdlicka (A Little Night Music), Jason Graae (Forbidden Hollywood), Stephanie Gibson (Cinderella), Nathan Lucrezio (Cinderella), Alex Rybeck (Grand Hotel), Von Smith (American Idol), Lucia Spina (Kinky Boots), Peter Marc Jacobson, Will and Anthony Nunziata, and Randy Roberts.

The cruise will board at 6 PM from the slip at 353 West Street in Manhattan before returning at 9 PM.

Tickets, which cost $500 (including cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, dinner, entertainment, the boat ride, and a photo of each guest with Drescher), can be ordered at Cancerschmancer.org/cruise-2017.
