It remains unknown what songs they will be performing from the smash-hit soundtrack but as The Schuyler Sisters were seen in costume it definitely seems as if they will be  doing the song that is their namesake.

The trio of actresses – including Krystal Joy Brown who plays Eliza and Aubin Wise who plays Peggy – were seen in their signature pastel-colored frocks as they played it up for the cameras.

They were also joined by actors Marc delaCruz and Fergie L. Philippe as well as several members of the ensemble.

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade is an annual holiday tradition but will be a bit different this year as it will be adhering to social distancing guidelines.

In previous years the parade route for floats and performers was two-and-a-half miles but this year it has been shortened to just one city block down 34th street. 

The iconic giant balloons will now be handled by a few select people while driven by utility vehicles instead of the usual crowd.

The cast of Hamilton will not be the only Broadway cast hitting the streets as the casts of Mean Girls, Jagged Little Pill and  Ain’t Too Proud — The Life and Times of The Temptations are also pretaping their performances.

There will also be several other music performances including one from original Hamilton castmember Leslie Odom Jr.
