Euan Morton, Danny Gardner, Kacie Sheik and More to Lead NEW YORK SPECTACULAR at Radio City

BroadwayWorld is excited to confirm principal casting for Madison Square Garden Company's upcoming production of NEW YORK SPECTACULAR STARRING THE RADIO CITY ROCKETTES, presented by Chase, at Radio City Music Hall. The limited eight week engagement begins June 15, 2016 and runs through August 7, 2016.

NEW YORK SPECTACULAR celebrates New York City in the summertime centered around the trip of a lifetime for two kids, who, while on a vacation in New York, are separated from their parents. The city magically comes to life and helps to reunite their family in the end.

Led by director and choreographer Mia Michaels, NEW YORK SPECTACULAR features an all-star creative team with Drama Desk Award-winner Douglas Carter Beane as the show's writer and Tony Award-nominee Emilio Sosa as the costume designer, among many others. NEW YORK SPECTACULAR will feature iconic scenery of New York locations and landmarks such as the Empire State Building, Wall Street, Central Park, Times Square and Radio City Music Hall, alongside larger-than-life statues like the Statue of Liberty and the Wall Street bull.

New York City-based agency Telsey & Company spearheaded the casting.
