Miller and the ladies of Sister Act will perform "Raise Your Voice," among other songs, as part of the 5 PM event. The disco-flavored musical has a score by Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater. Goldberg, who starred in the film of the same title, is among the producers of the Broadway musical.

Macy's has also announced that shoppers who spend over $200 at the Herald Square location that day will receive a pair of tickets to see Sister Act at the Broadway Theatre.

Tony Award-winning director Jerry Zaks (Guys and Dolls, The Addams Family) staged Sister Act, which has a book by Tony Award nominee Douglas Carter Beane (The Little Dog Laughed, Xanadu), as well as Emmy winners Cheri and Bill Steinkellner.

According to producers, "When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place cops are sure she won't be found — a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and an uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community, but in doing so blows her cover. Soon the gang are giving chase, only to find themselves up against Deloris and the power of her new found Sister Hood."

The Broadway Theatre is located at 1681 Broadway. For tickets phone (212) 239-6200, or visit Telecharge.com.
