"Exceeded Expectations!"

We decided to purchase tickets to the Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes because we had read that it was a NY tradition. We went expecting the show to be very good but we were blown away with the entire experience! Radio City Music Hall itself is a gorgeous venue, which we plan to tour the next time we are in the city! Living up to and exceeding its name, the performance is nothing short of spectacular! The music, the lights, the talent and precision of the Rockettes and other performers, the family-friendly dialogue--it all defies description! Using stunning staging and high-tech elements, the show literally surrounds you and pulls you into the performance! This show has to be experienced and I encourage every holiday visitor to NYC to add this to their itinerary! Awesome!!

We took our 4-year old grandson to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and had a marvelous time. He sat on this grandmother's lap and used her hands to help him applaud when all the Santa's appeared. The art deco lobby was fascinating to him (and me too). The crowds were not overwhelming for a Sunday matinee. This is a 'must do' for youngsters once in their lives.

This show is spectacular in every way imaginable. It is really fantastic to see the Rockettes perform. Kids and adults enjoy the magic of the season here! I never tire of this show. The crowds are dense and you have to be very patient. The lobby is beautiful featuring a gorgeous, huge crystal chandelier. There are concessions everywhere with gifts, food and souvenirs. The kids can have pictures taken with a Rockette which is always fun to see the joy in their faces. This is a not to be missed Christmas event!
