Michael JacksonThat's right theatre fans. Or should I say Michael Jackson fans. The "King of Pop" is headed to the Great White Way.

Image result for radio city christmas spectacular logoThat's right.The holiday's are finally here. Yes I know that the holiday's are technically still month's and month's away. Doesn't mean you can't plan ahead right? The 2018 Radio City Christmas Spectacular, which will play at the historic Radio City Music Hall from November 9 thru January 1, first premiered in 1933.

That's seventy-five years for those of you mathematicians. Now believe it or not, but in all the years that I have lived here, I have never seen the show. I know. I know. What's my problem? Do I not like Christmas? On the contrary. In fact it's one of my favorite holidays.

Next to Thanksgiving of course. I guess it just feels like one of those shows that is better to see with your family. Thankfully the show isn't going anywhere. So there is plenty of time to see it. Now for those of you who want tickets to see this holiday favorite, you are in luck. We sell it. In fact we sell every show in New York City. Get your tickets to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. Your holiday's won't be the same without it.

Customer Story

Image result for radio city christmas spectacular logoToday's customer comes all the way from the "Empire State". That's right. I am talking about New York. Houghton to be exact. Yesterday, I received a call from a travel agent who's client was planning a trip to New York City in December, and wanted to see a show when they were here.

Their choice? Why none other than the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. I mean what else are you going to see in December but one of the greatest holiday show's of all time?

Now even though they were scheduled to be here during one of the busiest times of the year, I assured her I would be able to get her client's excellent seats. In the end I got them great seats in the Center First Mezzanine, and at a rate that was lower than they had seen on other websites. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?

Customer Story

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts 1 and 2This week's customer story comes all the way from the " Empire State". That's right. I am talking about New York. The greatest state in the whole world. At least I think so. Anyway a few days ago, I received a call from a gentleman who wanted to take his kids to a Broadway show later this month.

But not just any show mind you. This show is split up into two parts. No it's not The Iceman Cometh. Although you would think so, as the show runs almost four hours. No, it is none other than Broadway's newest hit, Harry Potter an the Cursed Child Parts One and Two.Now I'll be the first to admit that I am not a Harry Potter fan. I've never read any of the books, nor have I seen any of the films.

It's just not my cup of tea I guess. But the truth is, it doesn't really matter what I think. The show is going to run for years and years. By the way, for those of you who want to see the show, you must remember that when purchasing tickets for the play, you must purchase both parts.

Also another thing to note. This show ain't cheap. In fact, the cost for one ticket, for both parts, start at around $800. Just to put things in perspective, one ticket is the same amount as my monthly rent. But enough about me. Let's back to the reason for today's blog. In the end, I got him and his whole family great seats in the center of the Dress Circle, and at a rate that was lower than they had seen on other sites. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?
