Jenna Ortega (Stuck in the Middle, Jane the Virgin) and Lilla Crawford (Annie, Into the Woods) share the role of Emily, the teen girl lead, in New York Spectacular — starring the Radio City Rockettes — which plays New York's Radio City Music Hall through August 7. Performances began June 15.

Led by director and choreographer Mia Michaels, New York Spectacular's creative team also includes Drama Desk Award winner Douglas Carter Beane as the show's writer and Tony Award nominee Emilio Sosa as the costume designer.

The cast also features Kacie Sheik, Kecia Lewis, Euan Morton, Jacob Ben Widmar, Vincent Crocilla, Danny Gardner, Blaien Alden Krauss and Jeff Pew.

New York Spectacular, according to press notes, "celebrates New York City in the summertime centered around the trip of a lifetime for two kids who are separated from their parents while on a vacation in New York. The city magically comes to life to help the brother, Jacob and sister, Emily, played by Ortega and Crawford, reunite with their family in the end."

The production features iconic scenery of New York locations and landmarks such as the Empire State Building, Wall Street, Central Park, Times Square and Radio City Music Hall, alongside larger-than-life statues like the Statue of Liberty and the Wall Street bull.
Casting was done by Telsey + Company.

Tickets are on sale now at and at the Radio City box office.
