New Rockettes Show, ‘Heart and Lights,’ Postponed until 2015

Heart and Lights, the new highly touted live show featuring the world-famous Rockettes, has been postponed. MSG Entertainment issued a press release that the limited run of the show will be moved to 2015 without specifying dates. Heart and Lights was to have begun performances at Radio City Music Hall on March 27 and would have included groundbreaking 3-D technology, giant puppets and a 26-foot-tall animatronic Statue of Liberty.

“While we are confident that the final production will be a spectacular, one-of-a-kind show, it has become clear that additional work is needed to deliver the unforgettable experience our customers have come to expect from us,” the statement from the producers read.

The spectacle tells the story of two teenage cousins exploring the Big Apple as they unearth secrets of their grandmother’s past. During their trek, they visit such NYC landmarks as the New York Public Library, the Stock Exchange and Central Park. Directed and choreographed by Linda Haberman, the stager of RCMH’s annual Christmas Spectacular, the show sported a book by Pulitzer and Tony-winning playwright Doug Wright (I Am My Own Wife, Grey Gardens). According to The New York Times, the show has cost $25 million so far and would have the first new spring show at Radio City to feature the Rockettes since 1997.

MSG has stated all ticket sales will be refunded, and new dates will be announced when they are scheduled.
