Radio City
Christmas Spectacular

One year we had family visiting for Christmas and we all thought it would be fun to see a Christmas show. We decided on the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and we were not disappointed!


Spectacular Indeed!

There is not a dull moment during the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. The performance is riveting for both young and old alike. It is an exciting mix of singing, dancing, and traditional stage scenes. The set designs and costumes are superb and bring the show to life.

Perhaps what the show is most famous for is the Radio City Rockettes. When the Rockettes are on stage, it's nearly impossible to take your eyes off their beautifully choreographed and remarkably synchronized dance moves. They are best known for their high kicks done in perfect unison.

The Christmas Spectacular is so uplifting that it could raise the spirits of even Scrooge himself! It is truly a performance like no other, with dramatic flourishes and positive messages.

I especially enjoyed the well-depicted scenes of New York City. It was very amusing to see a red double decker sightseeing bus full of Rockettes for their tour of the city! Santa appears numerous times as well.

One of the most well-known numbers is the "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers," which the Rockettes have been performing since 1933.

The "Living Nativity" at the end is a beautiful and touching portrayal of the Christmas story and the birth of Jesus. The wise men and the rest of the crowd parade onto the stage with - get this - REAL animals! As in actual camels walking across the stage!

My mother-in-law still declares it to be one of the highlights of her entire trip to New York City. I actually thought the show would be more geared toward children and was pleasantly surprised at how entertaining it was for us adults.


Bottom Line: Heart-warming storyline, incredible talent, and well-designed show. Perfect for the whole family. Do not miss!
