I saw Riverdance last night at the Starlight Theatre and actually enjoyed it. I was slightly worried that it wouldn’t be what I expected from hearing about the show years ago, but it was all that and more. The singers, musicians, and of course the dancers are all world class. I would definitely recommend seeing this show if you get the chance.
My favorite act of the night was called Trading Taps and featured “a trio of Irish dancers facing off against two urban American tappers.” The contrasting styles were interesting to watch and the duel was very entertaining. In the end they join together to close out the act to the loud cheers of the crowd.
How did I end up there for the show? Well Phil and Doni have had season tickets to Starlight for years, and even Phil seems to enjoy some of the shows. Kim convinced me that we should also get season tickets this year, so we did. This was our first show of the season and if the rest are of this quality I will deem the purchase a huge success. Next up is Dr. Doolittle.
