NEW YORK (AP) — Commuters at the busiest train station in the nation on Wednesday had to factor in snow, sleet, slush — and high-kicking Rockettes.
Eighteen of the dancers each wearing suits embedded with 152 LED lights performed a sneak peek at Grand Central Terminal of their upcoming show “Heart and Lights,” which premieres at Radio City Music Hall on March 27.
The show is written by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Doug Wright and will combine new Rockettes choreography and state-of-the-art technology, including 3D effects, elaborate animatronics, puppetry and GPS elements.
Wright has written the book for three Broadway musicals: “Hands on a Hardbody,” ”Grey Gardens” and “The Little Mermaid.”
