NEW YORK—I’ve just come home from a rehearsal for one of the most fun events in this city, which is then telecast all over the world: the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!
We were at our theater in our second day of tech rehearsals when our producer Ken Davenport announced to the company that we would be performing at the parade.
There will be four Broadway shows making appearances at the Thanksgiving Day Parade: “Once on This Island,” “Anastasia,” “SpongeBob Squarepants” and “Dear Evan Hansen.”
And then a few days ago, we spent a couple of hours at the Ripley-Grier rehearsal studios with our director Michael Arden and choreographer Camille Brown to figure out how to best present the production number.
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade airs on NBC today.
