The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will feature Broadway and Off-Broadway musicals during its telecast on the CBS network on November 26. The musicals scheduled to perform at the Macy's Thanksgiving parade are the Broadway revivals of Ragtime and West Side Story, as well as the current production of Dreamgirls playing at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem. The West Side Story cast will sing "America," and the Dreamgirls trio will perform the musical's title song on the show. The entire Ragtime cast will be gathering in Battery Park to sing the show's big anthem, "Wheels of a Dream," against the backdrop of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
