Annually since 1928 For 90 years, as the cider starts simmering and the sidewalk Santas start jingling, generations of New Yorkers have gathered in the city's most spectacular venue to experience a one-of-a-kind theatrical confection.
From the producers: "The Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes" will be technologically transformed with the addition of an all-new finale scene and redesigned elements. Directed by Tony, Drama Desk and Olivier Award-nominated director Sam Buntrock (Broadway and West End productions of "Sunday in the Park with George"), the new finale will include 100 drones that take flight to create a groundbreaking magical holiday light show, and new digital projections from Obscura Digital. The finale joins several of the production's beloved numbers, which will showcase new, state-of-the-art digital projections from Obscura to combine next-level technology with awe-inspiring artistry that extend the show beyond the stage.
Performances of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular tend to sell out, particularly the prime weekend shows from Thanksgiving on and the few days just after Christmas, so buying early is a very good idea.
The 2018 edition is expected to include many of the Rockettes classic numbers, including the "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers" and the dazzling "Snow Scene," as well as new light and digital elements including one of the largest 8K LED walls in the world.
According to Radio City, any child who has reached their 2nd birthday requires a ticket for admission to the Christmas Spectacular. Any child younger than 2 does not require a ticket, however, they must sit on a parent or guardian's lap.

Discount seats were great. Concierge service was well worth the $10.

The show was very good and family friendly. My only complaint was people that came late and were seated by the ushers during the performance. Our view was blocked on two separate occasions for several minutes each time. Considering the price of the show we should not have missed any of it. I feel the ushers should seat people between skits.
