Everyone knows that they need to grab their tickets to The Nutcracker when December rolls around, however there are some other great Holiday shows traditional and new that are worth viewing this season. Here is our playbill to this holiday season, and the shows that are worth a trip to the theatre!
In New York there are great traditional selections like the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, which features the precise and leggy dancing of the legendary Rocketts. This show definitely is a tradition for many with numbers like living nativity and wooden toy soldiers it is worth the visit to Radio City Music Hall! If you are stopping in to the city to see either of the Rocketts we suggest you stay at The Blakely New York as is a great hotel tucked right in Midtown Manhattan!
For a taste of something different, and a little less pricey, we suggest the funny twist on the classic Dickens, A Christmas Carol. A Broken Christmas Carol has taken the characters like Ebenezer Scrooge and Jacob Marley and re-written them with modern touch and cynical humor that flips the show on its head. This is not only for Christians, any religion will find the Jewish characters bringing a new point of view to this Christmas story comical. Held at the Walt Whitman Theater in Brooklyn a great hotel just nearby is the Trump Soho.
Don’t Miss A Christmas Story the Musical that has come to the Lunt Fontanne Theatre this season. It has all the BB Guns, pink bunny pajamas and triple-dog-dares you need this season, plus it brings new life to the beloved cult classic movie of Ralphie’s 1940’s Christmas story. Looking for a great hotel in walking distance to this show? Try the Marriot Marquis. It has the Times Square experience and a great view from the well named View Lounge!
Enjoy the Shows!
