(NEW YORK, NY) -- Madison Square Garden Entertainment Corp. (“MSG Entertainment”) and the Garden of Dreams Foundation are proud to announce that the 15th edition of the annual Garden of Dreams Talent Show will take place at Radio City Music Hall on Wednesday, April 19, 2023 at 7:00pm. More than 150 young people from the tri-state area, all facing major obstacles, will take the Great Stage at Radio City to showcase a variety of talents. The Garden of Dreams Talent Show is free and open to the public, but tickets must be reserved in advance at gardenofdreamsfdtn.org/talentshow2023.

“The Garden of Dreams Foundation uses the magic of MSG Entertainment’s venues and properties to create unforgettable memories for families and communities in the tri-state area that need it most, and the annual Talent Show is one of the incredible ways by which we do that,” said Rich Constable, Executive Vice President, Global Head of Government Affairs and Social Impact at MSG Entertainment. “Over its 15 editions, the Talent Show has given more than 2,500 young people the opportunity to live out their dreams and perform on stage at Radio City.”

“The annual Talent Show is dear to my heart, as both a musician and someone who has faced adversity – the joy it creates and impact it makes on our young people and in our communities cannot be overstated,” said Talent Show Creative Director and Garden of Dreams Foundation board member Darryl “DMC” McDaniels of RUN DMC. “These kids are already hard at work to bring audiences the best show yet, and I encourage everyone to attend on April 19. You won’t want to miss it!”
