I worked there and it was enchanting experience at a hard time in my life. Hard working a professional staff. They could work a bit more on retention though. My advice for patients is to get the hot cocoa in the beginning it is not that it is bad it is that it is organic so it goes bad fast. I wish for what you pay they could take you back stage and show you the magic of this place. It is really outstanding.
Great staff! The people there are very friendly and always ready to help. They love their job and you can see it in their faces, they are very proud to work for the company and that’s something you don’t find everywhere and especially in New York . The place is amazing! The chandelier is magical! Take time out during the holidays to explore Rockefeller center and buy a ticket to see one of their show. Trust me you won’t regret it. Christmas spectacular has to be part of your holiday. NO JOKE!!!
Truly a piece of New York City's artistic history. The venue is very well managed. With so many people going in and out per event/show its very impressive how clean the building in its entirety really is. Also, the security is very attuned to the needs of those coming to the facility. They are courteous and polite all while making sure they do their job efficiently and accurately. The bathrooms are constantly checked and cleaned, the vendors are polite and the ushers are always at the ready to help you and your party to your seats. Word of advice for anyone planning on coming during the holiday season to see the "Christmas Spectacular" with little children, come to an early show and take the little ones to the bathroom BEFORE the show starts. Even if they don't have to go, believe me, from one parent to another, it will save you the stress. After the shows, the bathroom lines are incredibly long. Also, it's viable to take advantage of an early show because NYC is known for its incredible food. Once outside the Music Hall, show goers can take a bite of some of the best food within just a couple of blocks. The earlier you go to a show, the less crowds are around once you leave Radio City. The foot traffic around Radio City is constantly saturating the streets but keep in mind, the later you go, the more time it may take you to get to see your show. At the end of the day, it's all worth it! Enjoy the show!
Fun, beautiful, one of the highlights of our visit to New York We were in New York on a four day three night tour and the Radio City Christmas Show was one of the attractions included in the tour. We had seen the rockettes before in a touring production but the Christmas Show was really special and spectacular. The two organs playing prior to the show were also a treat. Our seats were not the best but it didn't detract from the fun or the beauty one bit. The 3D special effects were really fun even for us old folks. We will certainly go back if we do another New York visit.
This review is based on the Radio City Christmas Spectacular featuring the Rockets. I've been to Radio City Music Hall a couple of times, really like the place, it's old but the set up for concerts and the Christmas Spectacular is really well done. The show itself was great, really enjoy the whole show from beginning to end, the Rockets, Santa, the Dancers, Singers, Tour of NYC in Christmas and Jesus Birth, everything is done so well and precise, it's a wonderful experience. To me, the best parts are the Rockets, Tour of NYC and Jesus Birth. Now, I strongly suggest you arrive at the function at least 1 to 2 hours before, the crowd gets crazy and restless around the time when the show starts, the staff I don't think does a good job of handling the crowd outside but also it's our fault for arriving late, some staff are rude, others were really nice. Overall the show was like the name says, Spectacular, it's totally worth it. I might go back next year.
