Growing up I remember it was a big deal to head into Boston and go to the theatre. For us it was attending the performance of The Boston Ballet’s Nutcracker (which I have yet to take my kids to!) But there is just something magical about those Rockettes. For as long as I can remember seeing the world famous Rockettes was on my to do list!
That is why I was so excited to be able to attend the performance the other night at the City Performing Arts Center-Wang Theatre. My kids have never been to the theatre and it was a nice last minute surprise. When I told them, they were excited as they saw the commercials for the performance! You might have heard how magical, delightful and spectacular the show is…..AND IT WAS!
We are lucky that the Radio City Christmas Spectacular® starring the world-famous Rockettes are in Boston from Friday December 2nd – Wednesday, Dec 28th so there is still time to see this great performance and what a performance it was. I was in awe, like my kids! This year’s show features brand-new scenes and songs, spectacular new sets, dazzling new costumes, an amazing 50-foot LED screen, and an unforgettable new finale!
The dancers movements are so precise and the Parade of the Wooden Soldiers scene was fantastic. Of course my kids were shocked when the reenactment of the first Christmas came on the stage. It was a Live Nativity –yes live, meaning that there were real camels, donkey’s and sheep! The kids all squealed!
I loved the “Christmas in New York,” with the Broadway-style singers and a life-sized double-decker bus. Seeing the show definitely put me in a holiday mood for sure and there is a favorite number for all ages. My 10 year old loved the Magic is there scene in which Santa helps a couple young friends with their last minute shopping and includes a trip to the North Pole. My seven year old loved the New York at Christmas (takes after me!) I also thought the living nativity was great.
