Several Broadway productions have been announced for the 90th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which will be held on the streets of New York City on November 24th.
The Broadways casts of Cats, Holiday Inn, Paramour, and Waitress are confirmed acts for the NBC broadcast. Additionally, the cast of NBC’s Hairspray Live! will offer a preview performance in advance of the December 7 premiere date. As with past years, the Radio City Rockettes will perform a musical number from the Radio City Christmas Spectacular.
The 90th procession will feature a star-studded cast, including Kelsea Ballerini; Tony Bennett; Aloe Blacc; Chloe x Halle; Easton Corbin; Daya; De La Soul; Diamante Eléctrico; Brett Eldredge; Fitz & the Tantrums; Christopher Jackson (Hamilton); Johnnyswim; Sandra Lee; Maddie & Tae; Sarah McLachlan; NHL legends Adam Graves and Eric Lindros; Ben Rector; Regina Spektor; the cast and Muppets of Sesame Street; Sprout’s Chica; Timeflies; U.S. Olympic Gold Medalists Michelle Carter and Laurie Hernandez; U.S. Paralympic Gold Medalists Mikey Brannigan, Gianfranco Iannotta; Grace VanderWaal; and Jacob Whitesides, among others.
It is a longstanding tradition for current Broadway shows to appear on the television broadcast of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Though the parade was first televised nationally in 1948, it was not until 1980 that a Broadway show was a featured performance. The Pirates of Penzance was the first show to perform a musical number on the telecast followed by shows such as Meet Me in St. Louis and Guys and Dolls. Interestingly, musical performances from Broadway shows would not become an annual tradition until 1992. Now, Broadway has an increased presence on the parade broadcast with as many as 5 musicals performing 3 minute selections each. In fact, the past two telecasts opened with a Broadway production number to kick off the festivities!
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will be broadcast nationally on NBC. Today’s Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, and Al Roker will host the three-hour broadcast, which begins at 9 AM ET.

Mel B, also known to audiences worldwide as the iconic “Scary Spice” of the Spice Girls, is a chart-topping music artist, actress, author, TV host and entrepreneur. One of the busiest working moms in the entertainment industry, she’s currently starring on hit TV shows on three different continents: in the US as a judge on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent;” in the UK as host of “Lip Sync Battle UK;” and in Australia as a guest judge on “The X Factor.” She is an accomplished author with her bestselling autobiography Catch a Fire. Also a successful businesswoman and entrepreneur, Mel B has partnered with the group behind Serafina restaurants to spearhead their West Coast expansion of 6 locations with the first having launched this past fall in Los Angeles.
Chicago currently stars Disney Channel star Veronica Dunne as Roxie Hart (thru 11/27), Lana Gordon as Velma Kelly, Paul Alexander Nolan as Billy Flynn, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, NaTasha Yvette Williams as Matron “Mama” Morton and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine. With a legendary book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, Chicago is now the #1 longest-running American musical in Broadway history.
Produced by Barry and Fran Weissler, Chicago is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording.
Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids.

This past year brought us a lot of great theatre. There were heart-stoppers, tear-jerkers, and even shows that made us want to dance in our seats! But one musical stood out from the rest, taking home 11 Tony awards, selling out its entire house months in advance, and bringing fame to its songwriter and original title star. It’s a little musical called Hamilton – you may have heard of it?
We know that it’s nearly impossible to get tickets to this mega-hit musical phenomenon. But guess what? Something new has just popped onto the horizon that allows anyone and everyone to get a peek into what goes on inside the Richard Rodgers Theatre eight shows a week. And the best part? You don’t need a Hamilton ticket to get into this one!
Enter the Hamilton pop-up shop, presented by Bloomingdale’s, in association with the musical sensation. Located right across the street from the “Room Where it Happens” is the theatre aficionado’s, professional gift giver’s, and Hamilton superfan’s heaven. The shop features official clothing, books, and other merchandise from the show including a new line of t-shirts designed specifically for the shop’s opening! It “blew us all away”, and we think it will blow you away too!
The store, located in The Paramount Hotel at 235 W 46th St. between 8th Avenue and Broadway, opens everyday at 11:30am and shutters at 6:00pm on Sunday, 6:30pm on Mondays, 7:30pm on Tuesdays & Thursdays, and 8:30pm on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. So next time you “take a break” and head to the Great White Way, stop by and see what the shop has to offer! We promise you’ll leave very “satisfied”!
