Radio City: “A must on every visitor’s list”

So states the back of this technicolor postcard, which has more to say about what was then the world’s biggest theater:

“On its huge stage are produced gigantic spectacles of great beauty and its screen provides the latest and best in motion picture entertainment. It has its own broadcasting studio atop the roof.”

And if John D. Rockefeller, Jr.’s original plans didn’t go awry, it would be the home of the Metropolitan Opera. But then Wall Street crashed, the opera company bailed . . . and since 1932 Radio City has been serving up pop music and gaudy musicals.

    My favorite Radio City Music Hall program was Easter with the Rockettes dressed as nuns in a cross formation each holding a lily! (And I am not kidding).

    I saw Phil Collins there in the 80s. It was awful.
