August 6, 2008 - by Ellis Whitman

Radio City Music Hall is “The Showplace of the Nation,” and one of the most famous entertainment venues in the world. Get an exclusive look at the legendary Radio City Music Hall! After an extensive restoration, the building reopened on October 4, 1999 and now reflects its original grandeur of opening night in 1932, sporting behind-the-scenes upgrades and refurbishment.

In addition to being a venue for performances, Radio City Music Hall also has a behind-the-scenes tour led by experienced tour guides. Explore the beautiful art-deco interiors and learn the secrets of the Great Stage -- one of the largest indoor performance stages in the world -- and its hydraulic system, which has been in operation since the 1930s. And as an exciting climax to the Stage Door Tour, guests will meet one of the world-famous Radio City Rockettes!
