What Shows Were Featured at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade?

For my last post this semester I thought I would stray a little from Broadway and talk about the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. This year marked the 90th annual parade and included many performances from Broadway shows and actors alike.

The parade included a performance from Waitress a new musical from the mind of Sara Bareilles.

 

It also featured the revival of cats.

 

It also featured the winner of the 2016 Tony for Best Revival of a Musical, The Color Purple.

 

NBC also made sure to advertise Hairspray Live during their coverage of the Parade.

 

Paramour, a musical put on by Cirque du Soleil was also featured in the parade.

 

Holiday Inn was also given a performance spot during the parade.

 

If this year’s performances weren’t enough for your Broadway bug Playbill.com has compiled a list of performances through the decades for you to watch.

 

I was also in this year’s parade with the WVU Marching Band!
