Escape From the Rock Cruise Reveals Alcatraz’s Notorious Inmates

Buy Tickets $21 $42

Blue & Gold Fleet’s Escape From the Rock Cruise is an exciting 90-minute excursion that takes you around the perimeter of Alcatraz to view the island from every angle. As the ship sails, passengers are treated to a presentation complete with sound effects and chilling tales of inmates Al Capone and Billy Cook, not to mention Clyde Johnson’s daring escape attempt. This historical yet entertaining boat trip does not stop at the island of Alcatraz itself, but it does evoke the days when this iconic maximum-security prison was the most feared institution in the American penal system.

From Broadway’s Million Dollar Quartet — Jared Freiburg & The Vagabonds Trio Celebrating the Early Years of Rock & Roll Featuring songs of Jerry Lee Lewis and more! For the past four years, Jared Freiburg has been touring the world on land and sea, performing the role of Jerry Lee Lewis in Broadway’s Tony Award-winning musical Million Dollar Quartet. Jared was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa, and began playing piano at the age of five by way of his grandmother. He was first introduced to the style of Jerry Lee Lewis as a young teenager and from that point on, he took on a serious obsession into Jerry Lee’s music and to the 1950s era as a whole. While others of his generation listened to pop music of their time, Jared was exposed to artists and songs of the ’50s and ’60s, setting him up for a dense musical pallet at a young age while spending hours daily devoting much of his passion to playing tribute to the Killer. While studying Jazz Performance in Southern California in 2015, Jared shifted directions as he got his first opportunity to put his talents on line actually portraying Jerry Lee Lewis in the touring production of Million Dollar Quartet aboard the Norwegian Getaway. Since then, he has traveled the world playing and singing both Jerry Lee’s classic tunes and his own, at sea as well as in prestigious theaters and concert venues around the United States.
