Witness the legendary Rockettes take the stage for a new spring performance evoking the vibrant energy of New York City and the magic of the spring season. Through unique puppetry, exciting dance numbers, original music and state-of-the-art technology, families will fall in love with the Big Apple all over again as they embark on a virtual-reality tour of the city, visiting iconic locations along the way. Listen for familiar voices lent to the large-scale puppets—Bella Thorne brings the Alice in Wonderland statue to life in a whimsical Central Park scene, and Whoopi Goldberg voices Lady Liberty herself. Also keep an eye out for celebrity cameos by famed New Yorkers such as Carmelo Anthony, Donald Trump, Martha Stewart and Henrik Lundqvist. Ages 8 and up.
