  What Is the 2017 Christmas Spectacular Starring Radio City Rockettes® Like?
The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is renowned for its wonderful dancing, stunning sets, and grand spectacle. The story linking the various beautiful scenes together may be flimsy, but no one really cares – because it's Christmas!  This spectacle is a holiday tradition that has been a special treat for New Yorkers and visitors alike for decades, and will continue to do so for many more generations. This show only comes around once a year, and it is definitely worth fitting into your holiday schedule!

Is Christmas Spectacular Starring Radio City Rockettes® Good for Kids?

Although the show was specifically designed for children, The Radio City Christmas Spectacular does a great job of entertaining the whole family. The scenes appeal to all ages, and nothing is deemed inappropriate for children or boring for middle-aged or older generations. The show is a one-of-a-kind compelling experience, plucked from a simpler time in history. At the same time, the show feels updated to be somewhat contemporary, with amazing lighting and a lot of high-tech surprises. See the show and you will be swept in the emotion and pageantry of this New York holiday staple.

The Best Seats in Radio City:

For non-Christmas Spectacular shows in Radio City Music Hall (like music concerts and the NBA Draft) the best seats to see the show are in the center-orchestra section, close to the front. But for the annual Christmas Spectacular the best seats will differ because the show is designed to be more of a grand spectacle that needs to be seen from a distance to be fully appreciated. Radio City Music Hall is somewhat cavernous and unlike most Broadway theatres, the Christmas Show has no problem in filling the whole theatre, although some sight lines are better than others, there are very few areas with poor sight lines for this show.

How The Different Scenes Change The Choice of Seats:

To complicate the matter a little further, the Christmas Spectacular Starring Radio City Rockettes Show contains a mixture of intricate and "localized" scenes combined with many large crowd pleasing elements and events. This means that being closer to the stage may not actually be better.
After careful consideration of all of the 6200 seats at every Radio City show, we have determined that the optimal seats are orchestra rows NN to A and seats 301 to 514. It is these seats that are the most optimal for your enjoyment of the Christmas Spectacular. The 12 Rows at the front of the orchestra (Rows AA to NN) should be avoided as they are too close to the stage, many elements of the "Big" show are missed, no advantage is garnered by seeing the actors' faces as the Christmas Spectacular is really all about the "Big and Spectacular" part of the show. The front of the 1st mezzanine is a good value choice when no discounts for orchestra seats are left or when you are going to see a peak show, where there are no discounts. The back and sides of the 2nd and 3rd mezzanines should be avoided because the distance to the stage is just too far, measured at over 350 feet. Some people buy the cheapest seats they can find and reseat themselves in empty seats after 20 minutes. This strategy is not very good as its hard to move from the balcony to the Orchestra because your tickets are checked by staff, but you can often move around in your own section if there are empty seats after 20 minutes.
