The Rockettes’ ‘Christmas Spectacular’ Is Canceled

For the first time in 87 years, the show at Radio City Music Hall won’t go on, the owner of the venue said Tuesday.

“We regret that the 2020 production of the ‘Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes’” has been canceled, Madison Square Garden Entertainment said in a statement, citing “uncertainty associated with the Covid-19 pandemic.”

According to the Rockettes’ website, more than 75 million people have seen the dancers perform since the Christmas show began in 1933. During a typical busy season, each of the 80 Rockettes may perform up to four shows a day, with each one kicking up to 650 times. As the news broke, several of the dancers posted their own statements on Instagram.

“Christmas has officially been cancelled,” wrote Samantha Berger, who has been performing with the Rockettes for 15 seasons. “Until Next year,” she added with two broken-heart emojis. “Please Wear a Mask.”

“We are in this together,” she wrote. “Looking forward to the next time we can celebrate Christmas time again in NYC.”
