Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Although we associate Thanksgiving with engorging ourselves with abundant food, spending time with family, and shopping, this is also big time of the year for live entertainment. With family all together, interest in concert and theater events always seems to peak around the holidays. One of the shows that have become a annual Thanksgiving tradition for many families is the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. The show began in 1933 and features over 140 performers singing, dancing, and performing musical scores on a ‘Spectacular’ stage. The Rockettes are the featured attraction and this years show is appropriately titled “The Rockettes Magical Journey“. This is a brand new production that will feature never before seen musical scores and live 3D scenes. Radio City Christmas Spectacular can be seen in Durham North Carolina, Nashville Tennessee, Boston Massachusetts, and of course New York through January 2, 2012.
Also, in the good wholesome family fun category is Yo Gabba Gabba (YGG). Those of you with kids are already aware of the popular Nick Jr. show hosted by DJ Lance Rock. The show features popular costumed characters such as Muno, Foofa, Brobee, Toodee and Plex. The cast of YGG will be performing across the US throughout the holidays.
This week we also have our first college basketball game(s) appearing on the list with the Las Vegas invitational. This 8 team tournament will take place this weekend at the Orleans Casino.
