The Good & Bad Of Lord Of The Dance
19 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

GOOD NEWS - This musical-dance performance is astonishingly beautiful. When I first saw this, I was stunned. I had never so many beautiful colors on one stage in my life! It's just an awesome production, visually-speaking. Not only are the colors spectacular, so is the lighting, and the beautiful of some of the females, particularly a violin player and a dancer in a red dress. Those two women were not just gorgeous, but talented.....but then again, who wasn't? Like "Riverdance," the play varies its acts well, going from tap dancing to instrumentalists, from fast to slow songs, ballet, you name it. Michael Flatley is a great dancer and is without doubt the star of the show....which leads me to....

THE BAD - Flatley, unfortunately, knows he's the star and his ego is more than apparent here. That whole bit with the bared chest certainly is one clue that he suddenly thinks of himself as some sex symbol. It doesn't help that he has these young screaming idiot girls in the audience literally shrieking every time he comes on stage. Perhaps he is a symbol, at least to those teen (I assume) girls. Flatley didn't annoy me: the shrieking audience did. They ruined the audio of this performance, often drowning out the music with their idol- worshiping screams. It really detracted from a fine show.
