Photo Coverage: Holiday in Bryant Park

On November 27 at 7PM, WCBS-TV (channel 2 in the New York tri-state area) presented "Holiday In Bryant Park" at The Pond at Bryant Park in the heart of Manhattan.  "Holiday In Bryant Park" attracted nearly 10,000 people into the park to be a part of the live television audience on WCBS-TV Channel 2.  WCBS-TV's anchors Chris Wragge and Kristine Johnson were hosts.

Entertainment legend and Tony-winner Ben Vereen crooned Christmas songs along with Broadway stars such as two-time Tony and Emmy Award winner Bebe Neuwirth, Tony nominees Carolee Carmello and Kelli O'Hara, Drama Desk winner Norm Lewis from the new Broadway show Disney's The Little Mermaid and Mandy Gonzalez and Christopher Jackson of the up-coming Broadway musical In The Heights. Robert Creighton of The Little Mermaid was the pre-festivity host.

Skating performances included three-time US National Pairs Champions Ina and Zimmerman and US and World Figure Skating Champion Todd Eldridge, along with the acclaimed "Haydenettes," 2007 National Champions in synchronized skating. Talent Unlimited, featuring a choir of 28 NYC city high schoolers, accompanied some of the stars.
