1. White Christmas 23%
This musical based on the classic 1954 holiday film led the pack with an arsenal of iconic songs like “Sisters” “Happy Holiday” and, of course, the title song, “White Christmas.” With music and lyrics by Irving Berlin, White Christmas wins audiences over with its old-time charm. Pop in the 2004 Broadway cast recording, featuring Brian D’Arcy James, and start trimming that tree!
2. The Radio City Christmas Spectacular 22%
Hot on the heels of White Christmas is this New York institution. The Radio City Christmas Spectacular has been high kicking since 1933 and shows no signs of stopping. The family-friendly musical revue reinvents itself each year, so you never see the same show twice. You'll be so inspired by the Rockettes' dazzling numbers, you'll want to grab Grandma and Uncle Ralph and assemble your own kickline on Christmas morning!
3. A Christmas Story 19%
Well on its way to becoming a New York tradition, A Christmas Story comes in at number three! The Tony-nominated musical, based on the TV-friendly holiday film, is currently running at Madison Square Garden through December 30.
