Love it or hate it, the new Barclays Center in downtown Brooklyn is a hit. From Barbra Streisand and Journey to the Brooklyn Nets and Bob Dylan, the venue has attracted some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment. Now the young ones will have something to rejoice about: on Tuesday, November 27, Disney On Ice will debut Rockin’ Ever After at Barclays Center.
Produced by Feld Entertainment, the spectacle presents a new twist on fairytales and several Disney stories that we all know quite well… Think Ariel, Rapunzel, Belle, and Merida (of Disney•Pixar’s smash hit Brave).
“The most exciting part of bringing a fearless and independent character like Merida to the ice for the first time is knowing that she has a powerful and inspiring message to deliver about finding the courage to determine one’s own fate,” said producer Nicole Feld. “We think her story translates well to the ice and will really resonate with today’s audience.”
The show says it’s a lively production that features appearances by characters from The Little Mermaid, Tangled, Beauty and the Beast as well as Mickey and Minnie Mouse. The real pull here for families, aside from the famous Disney characters, upbeat music and top-notching scenic design, should be Cindy Stuart‘s fantastic choreography. Having worked with figure skating Olympic Gold Medalists Robin Cousins, Katarina Witt and Jamie Salé and David Pelletier, she is a ice legend in her own right. Expect incredible spins, footwork and jumping from all the skaters.

Tuesday, November 27– 7:00pm
Wednesday, November 28 – 7:00pm
