From Lauren Beckham Falcone in the Boston Herald:
Rockette science: All you need to know about the ‘Spectacular’
The “Radio City Christmas Spectacular” is in town for its second year. The tap-dancing wooden soldiers made their box-office-breaking Boston debut at the Wang Theatre in 2004, performing for more than 200,000 theatergoers.

Different points of view from Boston reviewers. From Louise Kennedy in the Boston Globe:
From Radio City, jingle bell schlock
After nearly two hours of a garish, gaudy salute to the cheesiest and most commercial aspects of the season, the show suddenly goes all goopy and pious with a living Nativity scene. ... It would be funny if it weren’t such a blatant attempt to make this schlockfest of a show look as if it’s trying to be sincere about Christmas.

And from Lauren Beckham Falcone in the Boston Herald:
Rockettes keep crowds on mistle-toes
The kicks were high and the kitsch factor even higher, but The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is a perfect holiday treat, full of song, dance and Santa.
Last night’s two-hour season premiere kept audiences on their toes, from the opening number featuring Santa and his Rockette reindeer to the world-famous closing “Living Nativity,” complete with three sheep, two camels and a donkey.

From Karen Campbell in the Boston Globe:
Larger venue gives Mateo’s ‘Nutcracker’ room to grow
For a second - tier company, Mateo’s production is impressively sound, skillfully choreographed, and well-paced. There are few missteps choreographically or conceptually, though the opening prologue played to a closed curtain only calls attention to the lack of live music.
