"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."
"'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."
"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."
"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."
“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."
