'New York City Spring Spectacular' Review: Radio City Music Hall Packs a Massive Entertainment

'New York City Spring Spectacular' Review: Radio City Music Hall Packs a Massive Entertainment
BY MICHAEL SOMMERS
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
OFF BROADWAY REVIEW

The “New York Spring Spectacular” truly lives up to its title at Radio City Music Hall, where the fabulous Rockettes, Broadway baby Laura Benanti, “Dancing With the Stars” idol Derek Hough and a sizable all-singing, all-dancing ensemble merge with awesome visuals to celebrate Manhattan in the spring.

To fully describe this gi-normous 90-minute extravaganza is impossible, but safe to say that nothing like it can be found anywhere on Earth.

This family-friendly entertainment runs along a slim but efficacious narrative devised by playwright Joshua Harmon that involves a New York sightseeing guide whose little operation is bought by Jenna (Benanti), a rich technology mogul who intends to remake the tour into a virtual reality affair. A heavenly agent named Jack (Hough) materializes to convince Jenna otherwise by whisking her along on a song-and-dance excursion among sundry landmarks to prove that there is nothing like the real thing.

(One can argue, of course, that what emerges onstage is not actually real either, but who’s arguing?)
