When a show begins with 18 dancing reindeer, all lovely young women clad in sparkly leggings, waistcoats and antlers that light up like little Christmas trees, you know immediately what you’re in for — and it’s not subtlety. But it is a lot of fun. The Radio City Christmas Spectacular, starring the fabulously leggy Rockettes, is at the Paramount for a three-week run, and it would take the most committed of Grinches to resist this show’s unique charms.
The Rockettes’ traditional holiday show has been around since 1933 at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, with a couple of numbers performed unchanged, including the delightful "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers" and the lavish "Living Nativity," complete with actual sheep (one of whom was heard raising a voice in song) and camels, that closes the show.
