This year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade may look a little different without the crowds on the streets of New York, but the show will go on. Recently, a number of Broadway shows came together for the first time since March to rehearse and perform pre-taped performances to air during the parade on Thursday, November 26.
Tune in to NBC at 8 a.m. CST to enjoy the parade and performances from these casts throughout the event:
