The show, which is set to the music of the 70's, will include songs from Barry's new album, The Greatest Songs of the 70's, and is choreographed by Renee Roca, two-time U.S. ice dancing champion. The executive producer is Disson Skating and White Canvas Productions, led by artistic director Brian Boitano and Scott Williams is the producer.
