Jeanne and I had not been to this iconic 6000 seat theater in a while, but with the first clear, warm night of the season, we took the ferry across the Hudson, and enjoyed a remarkable “New York Spring Spectacular.”
The Rockerfeller Center, Radio City Music Hall is known for their precision and awesome dance troupe, the “Rockettes.” They… are backed by the best of the best orchestras, settings, special effects, technical wizardry and talent one could ever experience.
Additionally, this production starred Derek Hough (left)and Laura Benanti (right) along with a steller supporting cast.
A sampling of the staging was this dance number, “Singing in the Rain” during which a torrential rain storm, complete with lightning and thunder, inundated the stage and actors.
Of course, no Radio City Music Spectacular would be complete without the high stepping Rockettes.
And, after the show, the Manhattan skyline from the ferry was the nightcap.
If you get a chance to visit NYC, you’ve got to see the Best of the Best, as found here, and in countless other productions on Broadway. We love it!
Thanks for viewing, and comments are always welcome. M 🙂
A follow-up from my previous post about the Brooklyn Bridge, found here.
Just off the Brooklyn Bridge, is the 40 story Manhattan Municipal Building, on the National Register of Historic Places. A magnificent structure with intriguing interior design elements complementing its Beaux-Arts architecture, topped by columns and cupolas, and …an impressive guilded copper statue: “City Fame.”
Back in 1995, I was fortunate to see these features up close, but as was typical for those days, my camera was out of film.
However, 15 years earlier, in 1980, I had photographed the Brooklyn and Manhatten bridges from the World Trade Center, as seen below.
As usual,. thanks for visiting, and comments are always welcome. M:-)
