Broadway performances to watch on television this Thanksgiving
Don't miss out on these Broadway performances this Thanksgiving.
Although Thanksgiving will be slightly different this year, there’s one thing we can guarantee: the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Even though the parade won’t be going around New York City, there’ll still be a ton of performances to celebrate the occasion, including pre-filmed Broadway slots.
Four musicals will be taking part in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2020, as well as appearances from Broadway stars. Here’s what Broadway shows you can expect to see throughout the ceremony.
New York really is the greatest city in this world this Thanksgiving, especially when the cast of Hamilton perform. The Schuyler sisters are set to take center stage, with Jennie Harney as Angelica, Krystal Joy Brown as Eliza and Alysha Deslorieux as Peggy.
Watch the cast of Hamilton below.
Nominated for a staggering 15 Tony Awards, watch the cast of Jagged Little Pill ahead of a reunion concert next month. There’s a bunch of Tony nominees including Elizabeth Stanley, Celia Rose Gooding and Derek Klena, singing the finale song “You Learn.”
See the Jagged Little Pill performance below.
Join the quintet of Broadway stars as they perform “My Girl” and “Get Ready” from Ain't Too Proud—The Life and Times of the Temptations. Choreography will be reworked with social distancing in mind too. The cast includes Nik Walker as Otis Williams, James Harkness as Paul Williams, Jawan M. Jackson as Melvin Franklin, Jelani Remy as Eddie Kendricks, and Matt Manuel as David Ruffin.
Currently playing Regina George in Mean Girls, Reneé Rapp will sing “Someone Gets Hurt” joined by fellow company members.
We’re also looking forward to all the Broadway stars taking part, including Leslie Odom. Jr., Patti LaBelle and Jordin Sparks.
For the CBS telecast, company members of Dear Evan Hansen and Come From Away will perform. Dear Evan Hansen fans can enjoy a performance of “You Will Be Found”, while the Come From Away cast sing “Somewhere in the Middle of Nowhere.”
