Some Like It Hot

It will be chilly by November 24, but Some Like It Hot will bring the heat to the Macy's Parade for NBC. This musical adaptation of the classic 1959 film follows two jazz musicians, Joe and Jerry, as they escape the mob by going undercover with an all-female swing band. The leading cast includes Tony Award winner Christian Borle as Joe, J. Harrison Ghee as Jerry, and Adrianna Hicks as Sugar, Marilyn Monroe's role from the film.

A Beautiful Noise: The Neil Diamond Musical

This new musical about internationally renowned musician Neil Diamond will bring beautiful noise to the parade on the NBC broadcast. The show tells Diamond's story with two actors in his part: one as his young, up-and-coming self, and one as his current older self looking back on his storied career. Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade watchers will surely hear one, if not more, of his greatest hits — perhaps "America" or "Sweet Caroline."
