The Radio City Christmas Spectacular
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.
Fri., Jan. 2, 4 & 7:30 p.m.; Sat., Jan. 3, 1, 4:30 & 8 p.m.; Sun., Jan. 4, 4 & 7:30 p.m., 2009
