The New York Times likes the Rockettes: A review from 2005, background on the life of a Rockette from 2005, a profile of the new director and choreographer of the New York show from 2006, and background on last year’s 75th anniversary spectacular. Put ’em together, it’s a lot of information.

The New York Daily News has a nice profile of the Rockettes, too.
