"Amazing Show, but"

We as adults immensely enjoyed the show. The dancers' precision was amazing. Other scenes were also very well done. Incredible to see. BUT, Radio City Music Hall needs more Ladies' restrooms. Management needs to space out shows better so those waiting outside for their show are not waiting outside for a long length of time in poor weather.

Highly recommend this show if you are in New York during the Christmas season. A great holiday tradition. Dancers' precision is absolutely amazing, and aside from some new laser light technology, the show you're watching is just as an audience would have enjoyed it in the 1940s.

When we booked to go to New York the radio city tour was on our to do list but not see a show! After doing the tour we decided to book tickets for the show on their last night and my goodness am I glad we did! From start to finish it was incredible I have never seen anything like it, we were all in awe! So much hard work and dedication has gone into the whole show. From the rockets to the orchestra the singers the lights and effects costumes and floor staff!! A memory I will hold forever!

A highlight of our trip to NY City. We didn't want to see a show we can see at home, just to say we saw it on Broadway (once you are in a theatre you could be anywhere). We wanted something different, unique, that we wouldn't see elsewhere. We found it in this show, it was amazingly well done and expertly executed. Flawless performance and timing. Spent the whole show smiling and was all I hoped it would be. They use the whole theatre, so the show feels like it is surrounding you. Just brilliant.
