The beginning of Spring was celebrated at opening night of the 2015 New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City. The festivities was a star-studded red carpet along 6th Avenue that featured celebrities and New York personalities that are featured in the show as well as the stars of New York Spring Spectacular, Tony Award-winner Laura Benanti, Emmy Award-winner and current pro on Dancing With the Stars, Derek Hough.
New York Spring Spectacular takes audiences on a whirlwind adventure across New York City while telling an inspiring and hopeful narrative about New Yorkers who change each other’s lives in unexpectedly wonderful ways. Bernie, played by Wolpe, has been giving old fashioned tours of New York for decades, but his company was just bought by Jenna, played by Benanti, a whip smart techie with plans to fire Bernie and turn his tours into a virtual reality wonderland. Bernie is in trouble. Enter Jack, played by Hough, a spirited young man with a secret agenda of his own: If he can help Bernie keep his job, Jack will get an eternal reward. With the assistance of the legendary Rockettes, Bernie takes Jenna– and the audience– on the tour of a lifetime, from the Statue of Liberty to Central Park to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. By the last stop on this whirlwind adventure, this group of people will be forever changed, and they will never look at the city the same way again. The limited seven week engagement runs now through May 3, 2015. Tickets: Rockettes.com/spring
