"Madagascar Live" is expected to visit more than 70 cities across the United States beginning in January.

"Madagascar Live" takes the audience on an action-packed adventure with imaginative set, costume and puppet design, all brought to life with singing and dancing to such hit songs as "Move it, Move."
