Which Broadway Musicals Will Perform at Macy's Thanksgiving Parade?

The parade will commence at 9am, beginning at 77th Street and Central Park West, proceeding down to Columbus Circle, down Central Park South, and then marching down Sixth Avenue to 34th Street, when it will make its final turn to culminate at 7th Avenue and 34th Street.

Featuring music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles, this musical currently stars two-time Grammy Winner Jason Mraz and the breathtaking Betsy Wolfe.

2. Come From Away

This remarkable true story highlights the aftermath of 9/11 and the selflessness of small town in Newfoundland.

"On 9/11, the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all."
