During the finale, the line "Would you like to dance with me?" is repeated many times. The first time, the DVD subtitles mis-transcribe it as "Would you care to dance with me?" All the other times it is written correctly. See more »

Soul-less Razzle Dazzle
28 April 2007 | by librlartSee all my reviews

The reason you won't be able to sit still during this is that you'll be jumping up to turn it off. This is the sort of flashy glitz choreography that gives show dancing a bad name. The dancers may be capable, but the material they're presenting is completely appalling. The original music, where it exists, is really unsettlingly bad, and there are so many talented arrangers out there that there's no excuse for it. I think the reason the video director had to move the camera so much was to try to distract your attention from the stage. Fortunately, there are some old standard tunes that you might be able to sit through if you're unable to make it to the "off" or "eject" buttons.

It's a dance revue, and like all revues, there's no thread or continuity throughout it. That's frequently a problem, even with the best show choreographers like Fosse (Dancin', Fosse) or Robbins (Broadway). But their revues had the advantage of re-presenting works that had a story line to begin with. Because this a revue, there's no reason to care about any of the dancers, and we never really get to see any of them shine because everybody on the stage is going full-out all the time; there's no pacing or focus among the dancing.

I sat through 5 numbers, trying to give it another chance, and then finally had to turn it off.
