America‘s most popular entertainers have thrilled audiences at Radio City Music Hall since its doors opened December 27, 1932. Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis Jr. and Tony Bennett to mention only a few of the celebrities and luminaries to grace the Great Stage. Radio City Music Hall completed a seven month $70 million restoration in 1999. From the famed marquee to the seats and the ceilings to the carpets, the restoration returned Radio City Music Hall to its famed glory.
Reopened after an extensive restoration on October 4, 1999, the Music Hall now reflects its original grandeur of opening night, 1932, sporting behind-the-scenes upgrades and refurbishment. Following the lead of Radio City‘s experienced tour guides, guests explore: the Great Stage, one of the largest indoor performance stages in the world; the stage‘s hydraulic system, still in operation since the ‘30s; the renowned private suite, with 12-feet high gold leaf ceilings and onetime home to Samuel Roxy Rothafel. And as an exciting climax to the Stage Door Tour, guests will meet one of the world-famous Radio City Rockettes! The Radio City Stage Door Tour is a one hour, walking tour of the interior of Radio City Music Hall that departs from the Music Hall lobby.
