Radio City Music Hall Tickets
The venue was the brainchild of John D. Rockefeller, Jr., who along with his commercial partner, the Radio Corporation of America, built what was to become the ‘largest indoor theater in the world.’ It was built to offer high quality entertainment at affordable prices, prices that the ordinary people could afford. The interior designing was done by a relatively unknown interior designer, Donald Deskey. Making art an integral part of the design, his artists created murals, sculptures, and wall coverings, and he designed more than ‘thirty separate spaces, including eight lounges and smoking rooms, each with its own motif.’The Restoration
This great legacy from 1932, faded over time, with the spectacular interiors becoming dull with age. Gradually, everything lost its charm, and it took seven months in 1999 and over $70 million to restore it back to its earlier glory. Prior to its comprehensive restoration, its original interiors were carefully researched to bring it back to its original splendor.
To obtain clues about the design of the original Hall, research included poring through historical archives, old photos and newspaper clippings. The company that made the original seating recreated the seating in the auditorium. Carpets, and draperies were rewoven in original patterns and colors. The neon marquee, which is a full city block long, has been restored to its original glory too.
The result of such painstaking restoration is there for all to see. No wonder, The venue is the Showplace of the Nation.The Showplace Of The Nation
