Bergasse earned a 2015 Tony nomination for his choreography in the On the Town revival. He won a 2012 Primetime Emmy Award for choreographing the number "Let's Be Bad" for "Smash." He also choreographed last season's revival of Gigi.

LG is using the event to launch its new TWIN Wash washing machine. Eric Wright and the Puppet Kitchen are building the puppets and David Van Tieghem is composing the music. The five-minute performances will begin at 9:15 AM, 11 AM, 12:45 PM, 2 PM, 3:15 PM and 4:30 PM.
