I saw the Rockettes live back in the 1970's and have always wanted to go back. I took my daughters and grand daughters. Everyone loved it. There was more theatrics in this show and not as much constant dancing. It was very entertaining and certainly put us in the Christmas spirit.

My wife and I had never been inside the Radio City venue and are pleased we finally made it this time round. Organisation of people attending and leaving, it has to be said was not very good at all. When one considers that this large venue should be used to organising attendees, and yet they are not. There was really just one large mass of people all over the concessions floor trying to buy drinks, snacks and moments mixed in with those who wanted to gather near an auditorium door yet were blissfully unaware who was doing what and nobody was directing flow. That said, the venue is impressive and the show was really very good. The choreography and dancing was great and the way the show flowed was very good. The 3 D part was also very engaging. So pleased to have finally seen the show.

The Christmas Spectacular at Radio City is awesome. What an amazing show, beautifully done and top notch. You can get a picture with a Rockette. After the show check out the Tree in Rockefeller plaza. Worth the money. We go every year.
