Radio City's iconic 'Christmas Spectacular' stars more than 140 performers in a heartwarming revue about finding the spirit of season in your heart. Headlined by The Rockettes, the famed precision dance troupe known for its synchronized routines such as "Rag Dolls" and "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers," the show also features actors, singers, dancers, Santa, high-tech interactives, and a climactic Living Nativity complete with animals. A New York Christmas tradition for the whole family since 1933.

Drama Queen NYC

“It is first and foremost spectacular, driven by the amazing unison dancing of the Rockettes themselves, but hugely abetted by the stunning hydraulics system and dazzling projections...Unapologetically schmaltzy and sentimental...The sheer virtuosity of all involved elevates it above mere treacle...Branam has pulled together a daunting number of elements and collaborators to put together an extravaganza that can hold its head up in the tradition of Rockettes’ legendary holiday-season shows." Full Review

The New York Times

for a previous production "Obviously, seasonal cheer floods 'Christmas Spectacular:' It coats every second of the production...This is a show for Broadway fans who miss the Babylonian scale of the form in its heyday—including a satisfyingly large, finger-snapping orchestra...While the show integrates high-tech innovations...its appeal remains delightfully human. Even in tight unison, the Rockettes are not a machine but a single organism constantly shifting and recombining its constituent elements." Full Review

Talkin' Broadway

for a previous production "A curative that could not be more needed right now. And its stunning stars, as always, deliver the goods. Those would, of course, be the 36 Rockettes who, through their military-precise hoofing, kicking, and goodwill knock out the blues and propel us into the Technicolor universe of eternal Yuletide happiness...They just work, just like the 'Christmas Spectacular' just works—a model of mechanical, at times seemingly scientific, approach to mainstream entertainment." Full Review

Times Square Chronicles

for a previous production "From the moment the show starts off with the fabulous orchestra and singing usherettes, you are transported to a magical wonderland. The adorable Rockettes prance in as reindeer ushering in Santa and you are a child once again...The elaborate sets, the array of costumes, and the dazzling lights are sensational, and the impressive projections are thrilling...'Christmas Spectacular' is a holiday card of all New York is, sealed with high kicks and glamour." Full Review

85
BroadwayWorld

for a previous production "'The Radio City Christmas Spectacular' returns in all its glory...The show closely resembles last year's top-notch production with some slight modifications that only enhance the extravaganza. The iconic Rockettes remain supreme with their eye-high kicks, razor-sharp precision and synchronized choreography...But the show is more spectacle than story, with the Rockettes as its most valuable players...Kudos to the dancers and singers who add an extra sparkle this year."

See it if you love Christmas! The Rockettes are absolutely wonderful, especially in the March of the Tin Soldiers. They never disappoint. A tradition.

Ambitious, Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining

See it if You want to bring the youngsters or if you missed it for a few years. Best bit is the 3D Santa Claus flying to N.Y.C, and the fav. sites

Don't see it if wonder if projectionists will replace scenic designers. R.C. is huge. Something has to be lost in some seats. Program (inc.cast) a must.

Don't see it if you're not in the mood for family-friendly, cheesy performances or a 3D film of Santa to start the show

73
Family-friendly, Cliched, Dated, Fluffy, Traditional

See it if you've never seen it. It's cheesy, silly & barely updated in 75 yrs, but it's a holiday tradition & worth it just for the famous kick-line.

Don't see it if you're going to take it seriously. This is pure child-wonderment fluff. You know what you're getting: If you don't want it, don't see it.

Banal, Cliched, Dated, Great staging, Fluffy

See it if big flashy shows are your thing. Not much new here: same show, winter songs, animals, dances - prob same dancers - & same ending as always.

Don't see it if you've seen it ONCE. It's entertaining, but once is enough. Radio City is magnificent but this annual show is more for tourists than NY'ers.

Everyone should see this show at least once in their life!, Goofy and silly, but still lots of fun., Entertaining and happy-making, The rockettes are better than ever, The 3-d videos, new sets and projections add a lot.

See it if You've never seen the show, Radio City or the Rockettes live before, and just want to be thrilled by a talented cast and lots of spectacle.

Don't see it if Too cool for this type show, aren't impressed with precision dancing, want something serious. This is a VERY New York Xmas experience. Go 1X
