The show also will feature video cameos by 50 Cent, Odell Beckham Jr., Victor Cruz, Walt Frazier, John Leguizamo, Al Michaels, Kelly Ripa, Mariano Rivera and Sam Rosen.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler may be done pairing up to host the Golden Globes, but the two comediennes will still be (somewhat) together onstage in New York City.

The Saturday Night Live alumnae will serve as the voices of the New York Public Library's lion statues in the upcoming New York Spring Spectacular, Weinstein Live Entertainment and MSG Entertainment announced. They join Whoopi Goldberg, who will voice the Statue of Liberty puppet, and Bella Thorne, who will voice the Alice in Wonderland statue.

Additionally, the Warren Carlyle-directed, landmark-hopping production — starring Laura Benanti, Derek Hough and the Rockettes — will also feature video cameos by 50 Cent, Odell Beckham Jr., Victor Cruz, Walt Frazier, John Leguizamo, Al Michaels, Kelly Ripa, Mariano Rivera and Sam Rosen — a lineup joining the previously announced Carmelo Anthony, Henrik Lundqvist, Martha Stewart and Donald Trump. Illumination Entertainment’s Minions (of Despicable Me fame), Paddington Bear, aerialists and the Easter Bunny will also be featured in the production.

Previews begin March 12, ahead of the play's March 26 opening. The Radio City Music Hall show will run through May 3.
