GET YOUR KICKS: The Rockettes high stepped it to the Nokia Theatre over the weekend for the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. The show features just about every Christmas character you can think of, but the dancers, of course, are the highlight. “Whether they were prancing reindeer, as in the opening number, or performing the glamorous tap routine in ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas,’ every step was perfection,” writes Margaret Putnam in her theaterjones.com review. Reviewing for dallasnews.com, Joy Tipping says that when the Rockettes first hit the stage, “as 18 high-kicking reindeer, the sparkle quotient goes stratospheric and remains there for the rest of the show.” Need further convincing? Check out this recent piece on slate.com detailing the finer points of the show.
