Putting 'Riverdance' On The Global Map
8 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the first Riverdance for most of us to see and enjoy, beginning in the mid '90s. Michael Flatley and Jean Butler are the lead dancers and both are fun to watch.

To me, the more Irish the song, the better. There is at least one song that is not Irish: the African "Freedom" number, and I wonder why it is in the show. The dancing is excellent and usually fun to watch. Butler doesn't tap dance much, but even in the fast ballet-type numbers she is a joy to watch for her amazing footwork and her beauty - a great face and even greater legs!

Flatley leads a talented group of dancers. He's pretty amazing, too: a great talent. I prefer him in this show as opposed to the 1998 Lord Of The Dance, where he seems full of himself. I don't see that ego in this performance, just his dancing.

The bagpipe number by Davy Spillane was interesting but went on too long. Marai Pages may not be the beauty like Butler, but so what? Her flamenco dancing is always a treat.

Overall, a great show that put Riverdance on the map, worldwide.
