We're not going to be seeing a 26-foot tall Statue of Liberty come to life anytime soon. The Rockettes’ Heart & Lights, which was supposed to be playing at Radio City Music Hall this spring, has been postponed until next year. According to a statement from the show’s producers: “it has become clear that additional work is needed to deliver the unforgettable experience our customers have come to expect from us.”
The original dance show, crafted by Linda Haberman and featuring a book by Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Doug Wright, had been set to feature groundbreaking technology and state-of-the-art puppetry that brought New York City landmarks to life, including a 26-foot tall Statue of Liberty.
No word yet on the 2014 dates for the Rockettes' main gig, the Christmas Spectacular, but as we all know, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without it!
