My very first time inside the Radio City Music Hall was epic. We got an amazing deal on tickets from their street team, our seats were near the center about 13 rows from the stage in the orchestra. Santa walked down our aisle! Our tickets were for the last show of the night which means the audience was fairly thin but the performers were definitely on their game.

The theater was amazing. The lobby boasted an amazing and humungous tree of lights that we managed to photograph, although I don’t think the photos convey the actual size with any accuracy. The actual theater had many many different levels and this amazing arched ceiling that actually served as a screen for some of the more inventive light displays.

I don’t know what I expected from the show. I guess I knew there would be synchronized kicks and music but i don’t think I realized there would be a story or quite so many dances, costume changes, dancers, technological intricacies, and that I’d be so enthralled. The photo above is one of the only ones where the dancers were not in perfect harmony but generally they were.

About clarissa

I'm a girl from Texas living in New York since October 2010. I fell in love with New York City on a business trip here in April 2009. I had to drag my husband along for the ride at first but just a few hours on his own while I was at the conference and he was completely on board. He began texting me mundane things like the price of milk and the quality of produce so that I could see it wasn't so much different than Austin. What are the chances that after just one week in New York two people would leave with the exact same resolution to one day live there? We did. Just about 18 months later we signed a lease on a new apartment and started a new chapter in our lives. This blog will hopefully give me a chance to document our adventures in New York as well as to share my perspective on the same using photos and stories. enjoy.
