Many of the performances will be pre-taped and will consist of local artists since there isn’t much traveling going on right now. Luckily for viewers, there will be lots of Broadway numbers during the show. For safety, the talent was required to quarantine for two weeks and have been tested multiple times. The event will also include the floats that they normally have each year.
