“Radio City Music Hall” by Paul McGehee. The art-deco masterpiece of the entertainment world, located in the heart of New York City as part of Rockefeller Center, first opened its doors to the public in December of 1932. Originally four theatres were scheduled to be built in the complex, on ground first planned to be for the Metropolitan Opera House, but only the International Music Hall figured in the final result. As the Radio Corporation of America, RCA, was an early tenant of the complex, the Music Hall was soon being referred to as "Radio City", and by the late 1930's officially became Radio City Music Hall. An opulent theatre with seating for close to 6,000 patrons to view its giant stage and movie screen, Radio City Music Hall also houses two mighty Wurlitzer theatre organs, one of which is the largest one ever made by the company. Radio City is the home to the Rockettes, a well-choreographed precision dance troupe of high-kicking ladies, famous in particular for their appearances in the annual Christmas Spectacular as a line of wind-up toy soldiers. It has not always been smooth sailing for Radio City financially through the years, but it is now considered a national treasure and hosts not only its stage productions but concerts, television award shows and sports events. Radio City is definitely worth a visit to catch a show during your next trip to NYC.
