This stunning 6,200-seat Art Deco theater opened in 1932, and legendary Radio City continues to be a choice venue, where the theater alone adds a dash of panache to any performance. Star of the holiday season is the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, starring the legendary Rockettes. Touring chart toppers and old faves, from Neil Young to the Gipsy Kings, have also performed here. Thanks to perfect acoustics and uninterrupted sightlines, there’s nary a bad seat in the house. The theater also hosts dance performances; family entertainment; and a number of annual awards shows have been held here, such as the Tony Awards, the Essence Awards, and MTV Video Music Awards.
