Play of the Week: Radio City Christmas Spectacular

Even on tour, the Christmas Spectacular pays rousing homage to the place where the magic started:  New York City!  Be dazzled as the Rockettes bring you the twinkle of Times Square and the bustle of the Big Apple in the show stopping "New York at Christmas."To a twinkling tune that delights the ear, the famous 'Parade of the Wooden Soldiers' has wowed audiences, year after year, since 1933.  The accuracy and precise formations give the audience the rare joy of entertainment creating art - everybody's favorite, polished up and brighter than ever!
For those who love to be in the Christmas spirit (and even for those Scrooges out there), I have the show for you.  Every year, the world famous Rockettes strut their stuff across the stage for millions of people all in the name of Christmas.  The play combines both the sacred and secular elements of the Holiday; Santas and presents are included, of course, as well as a Nativity scene. Classic Christmas stories are also included, such as the Nutcracker Suite.  Not only is it a fantastic and well-performed show, but it is also one of the cheapest.  Tickets can be purchased for only $55.  However, these are for the seats in the third mezzanine.  Tickets in the orchestra can be as expensive as $105, but here’s the thing: there is not one bad seat in that theater.  I myself have watched the play from the third mezzanine, and I had a perfect view the whole time.  If New York isn’t in your near future, the play may be coming to a town near you.  This play does in fact have a traveling company and shares the holiday magic all over the country.  The show is only 90 minutes long, and it does not have an intermission.  It is a show fit for the whole family.  It will warm your hearts and put a smile on your face.  I personally give this show five stars.

Every holiday season... The lights dim.  The curtain rises.  The audience hushes.   The stage bursts to life with the Radio City Christmas Spectacular - filled with wall-to-wall dance numbers.  Here, the Rockettes enchant us with a rhythmic, rousing tap rendition of "The 12 Days of Christmas.".
