For the first time in its 75-year history, The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is being broadcast on TV, December 1 on NBC, and producer Don Hewitt, who attended the original performance back in 1933, says the long-legged ladies in the Rockettes stand high above the competition.
Hewitt says, Everyone else is tinsel around the Rockettes. Theyre Americana. You talk about Dancing With The Stars thats exactly what this has been for 75 years!
And for Rockette Kelly King, dancing in the historical high- stepping show is a childhood dream come true.
King says, I remember seeing the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade and wanting to be a Rockette so badly. I knew from the first moment I saw them.
But off-stage, dont expect any high-kicking hijinks from King.
She says, When I go out, thats my personal time.
