Michael Live! in New York City is a parody of Barney Live! in New York City by Mister McLean.
Michael and his friends take the stage to delight and entertain everyone at Radio City Music Hall. They all work together to make a special surprise for the audience using items from the Michael Bag. But before they are able to share it, Baloo from Cape Suzette visits the backyard and sneaks away with the bag. Throughout the show, Michael's friends try to catch Baloo and teach him that all you have to do is make friends of your own.
Also, the chase takes everyone to Michael's Imagination Circus, filled with fun-loving clowns, monkeys, an elephant, and dancing bears.
After the circus ends, the chase continues after Baloo confesses that he took the bag for everyone to play with him. After this, he remembers to use the magic words "Please" and "Thank You" and then becomes friends with Michael and the rest. Michael then unveils the surprise to the audience and asks them to use their imaginations to make the heart bigger. After the unveiling of the then bigger heart, Michael, Jeff, Emily, Baloo, and the other characters wrap up the show with "Everyone is Special".
