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!
