BWW Review: Sweet Loving RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER THE MUSICAL Stops at DolbyBWW Review: Sweet Loving RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER THE MUSICAL Stops at Dolby
by Don Grigware - Dec 27, 2016

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was immortalized in the 60s TV classic of the same name and is now full-blown in an onstage touring musical called Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer The Musical. It follows the film almost to the letter with a bevy of animal characters, elves and of course, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus.

Now with its two-day stop at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Rudolph... is a delight for children with its sugar-coated, infectiously cute little story. (more...)
