Legs, legs, legs. This, of course, is the first thing that comes to mind for many when they think of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, which features the perfectly proportioned, high-kicking, megawatt-smiling line of ladies known as the Rockettes. Even if youre totally burned out on Christmas, theres always room for a spectacular, right? And thats almost an understatement when it comes to describing the show now playing at the Toyota Center, which is specially tailored for arenas and took 38 semi-trailer trucks to transport to Houston. In addition to the girls, the show features 60 Santas wielding bells and bellies, the famed line of toy soldiers, a Nutcracker excerpt and, of course, a living nativity. Throw in a flying Santa, falling snow and an 80-foot LED screen, and for once, the gams might end up being an afterthought. 4 and 7:30 p.m. Friday, 1, 4:30 and 8 p.m. Saturday, 1 and 4 p.m. Sunday. 1510 Polk. For information, call 866-446-8849 or visit www.radiocitychristmas.com. $29 to $79.
