Rockettes on NBC Saturday night

Check out the Radio City Christmas Spectacular TV special this Saturday, Dec. 1, at 8 p.m. on NBC. Here are the details:

"This December NBC brings more holiday cheer into viewers homes with 'The Radio City Christmas Spectacular' special - For the first time ever, NBC will televise the 75th celebration of the "Radio City Christmas Spectacular" in a one-hour exclusive special from the great stages at Radio City Music Hall. Hosted by Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira ("Today"), the show will feature brand new glamorous costumes, state-of-the-art special effects and new eye-popping numbers performed by the world-famous Radio City Rockettes, as well as traditional favorites including the famed "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers." This year's brand new and re-imagined production will be executive produced by legendary and veteran news producer Don Hewitt."

And for those of you who haven't gotten your Radio City Christmas Spectacular tickets for the Tampa engagement... what are you waiting for?

As many of Musicals lovers I LOVE the Radio City Christmas Spectacular! It is my favourite ever... Last year I’ve been in NY & I tried to get my ticket …guess what everything was sold out that show how great the show is. Anyhow I end up getting it from a site through I’m planning to see it again this so I will just get tickets from the same place

So I'll be analyzing as well as enjoying the show.

Thanks for your comment that is nothing more than a thinly veiled sales pitch for a third party vendor.

Florida readers of Culture Shock please note that under Florida Statutes 817.36 Resale of Tickets, which took effect July 1, 2009, it is illegal for any person or entity to offer or resell a ticket to any performance at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center for more than $1 over this nonprofit institution’s originally assigned price. Substantial penalties are in place for violators.

All TBPAC tickets are covered by the statute and contain a notice that they cannot be resold for more than their originally assigned face value. To keep our tickets affordable and accessible, violators will be prosecuted.

Everyday we see patrons who have been overcharged for tickets. Patrons, work with the show's venue - it is the best way to ensure legitimate, appropriately priced tickets.

And keep reading Culture Shock - we'll always keep you informed when tickets go on sale (Mary Poppins Nov. 6!) so you'll never have to worry a show being sold out for you!

So thanks Louise - we love another chance to educate our readers about organizations like yours!
