‘Newsies,’ ‘Once,’ and More Featured on CBS’ Thanksgiving Parade Coverage


Based on the classic film about the real-life "Newsboy Strike of 1899," Newsies is a high-energy, crowd-pleasing new musical from Disney for your whole family featuring Alan Menken’s (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast) spectacular Tony-winning score.




Broadcast live around the world on Thursday, November 22 at 9:00am EST, CBS’ special coverage of the Thanksgiving Day Parade will feature portions of the 86th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as well as performances by the casts of the Tony-winning Broadway musicals Once and Newsies.

The cast of Newsies, the Tony-winning new American musical, will give a performance of “King of New York.” For the first time ever, television audiences will have the opportunity to see a number performed on the stage of the Nederlander Theatre, where Newsies plays to sold-out crowds.

Among those who will also be part of the telecast are Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain and actor Dan Stevens, who star in the Broadway revival of The Heiress; Emmy Award-winning actor Ed Asner, currently starring in Grace; and Emmy winner Henry Winkler, who was recently seen in Broadway’s The Performers.

For the second consecutive year, Broadway and country music star Laura Bell Bundy will offer an additional viewpoint of the parade as its “on-the-street” reporter during the event, as she reports and interacts with the crowd during the parade.


Winner of eight 2012 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Once is a musical celebration of life and love brought to the stage by a visionary collection of actors/musicians: thrilling in its originality, daring in its honesty, and unforgettable in every way.
