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.

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."

PinnedWASHINGTON — The United States shot down a Chinese spy balloon on Saturday that had spent the last week traversing the country, American officials said, an explosive end to a drama that put a diplomatic crisis between the world’s two great powers onto television screens in real time. The balloon, which spent five days traveling in a diagonal southeast route from Idaho to the Carolinas, had moved off the coast by midday Saturday and was over the Atlantic Ocean. But Mr. Blinken said the entry of the spy balloon was a “clear violation of U.S. sovereignty and international law.”U.S. officials conveyed to Chinese officials several times in recent days that the U.S. military might shoot down the spy balloon. U.S. officials are now watching closely for China’s reaction to the downing of the balloon — and whether the Chinese military will retaliate against an American asset. Military officials say that China has spy balloons orbiting around the world at 60,000 feet at any given time, and the balloons occasionally stray into American territory.1 day ago The New York Times
