This is honestly so pathetic of MSG and I hope they see protesters at their door. I also hope the Tony Awards boycott them and not use RCMH this year https://www.broadwayworld.com/article/Radio-City-Rockettes-to-Perform-at-Trump-Inauguration-20161222

I will be shocked if anybody boycotts the Rockettes.

The Rockettes themselves have little choice in this, sadly.

I'm sure the women on the Rockettes are none too pleased of this. I wouldn't be.

He had to come up with someone, sorry the girls have nothing to say about it.

Well I didn't want to get into it, but he's a Satanist. Every full moon he sacrifices 4 puppies to the Dark Lord and smears their blood on his paino. This should help you understand the score for Wicked a little bit more. Tazber's: Reply to Is Stephen Schwartz a Practicing Christian

That really sucks... I think they should be entitled to have a say. I see both sides of this article but still...

Tell Radio City that you don't support the decision to have the Rockettes perform for Trump's inauguration and that you as a consumer believe they should reconsider. Flood their phones and email inbox. Take action! I also urge any Rockette that is not one of the 12 full time Rockettes to make an excuse to turn it down.
Email the following:
feedbackradiocity@MSG.com
Call AGVA (American Guild of Variety Artists)
212-675-1003
You can also e-mail the producers:
Jill.deforte@msg.com and Larry.sedwick@msg.com
CEO of MSG jdolan@msg.com
Make sure you express that if a Rockette does not wish to perform, she shouldn't have to, and there should not be a repercussion. Make your voice heard!

That's awesome! They should be honored to have been chosen to be part of such a historic event.

Boycott the Music Hall and anything the Dolan family has their grubby hands on.

Thank God I hadn't yet bought tickets to the show this year. Feel bad for those women.

You have to admit that it is pretty funny that the only talent he has corralled so far is the Rockettes and Jackie Evancho.  i guess he'll say that Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby would have performed if they were still alive!

Closer to home, the Texas State University Strutters ( a nationally renowned university dance team...the largest in the country) has agreed to perform at that Inauguration.  The university is located in San Marcos, TX (just south of Austin).  So, that college has agreed to perform for a man who:  made fun of a reporter's disability....who has criticized veterans...who basically ridiculed John Mc Cain's experiences as a POW....who has admitted to going into a beauty pageant's dressing room unnannounced..while the contestants were undressed....including teenage beauty pageant contestants...who criticizes the news media for...(gasp) not kowtowing to him.....the list goes on and on and on.  Shame on you Radio City (organization) and Texas State for playing before such a thin skilled, ignorant troglodyte.  When I go to see the Rockettes on Dec. 25th...I'm wearing a  black shirt as a symbol of protest.  

"Noel [Coward] and I were in Paris once. Adjoining rooms, of course. One night, I felt mischievous, so I knocked on Noel's door, and he asked, 'Who is it?' I lowered my voice and said 'Hotel detective. Have you got a gentleman in your room?' He answered, 'Just a minute, I'll ask him.'" (Beatrice Lillie)

Disgusting. I feel bad for the dancers who have no say in this. 

I'll never see that show again, now.

I wonder if he'll invade their dressing room while they're changing like he did to his pageant contestants :/

Some people have a lot of growing up to do.
