The Rockettes’ were the stars of this schmultzy Christmas extravaganza that has become a staple of Radio City. The show was brilliant for the first half hour and then started to drag for the remaining 60 minutes.
Two things I loved:
- the 3-D animation at the beginning; and
- the stage sets were impressive (as pictured above).
Two points of things I didn’t love:
- the performance conveyed an overarching sense of nostalgia for a “better time” which compounded by the very “white” cast creeped me out; and
- there was one very tacky (and blatant) episode of product placement.
