Riverdance

From the desk of The Movie Snob

Riverdance. Apparently I’m one of the last people in America to see this production of Irish music and dance. My mom and I saw a matinee performance at Verizon Theater here in Grand Prairie, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s about a two-hour show (including the intermission), and it consists of a few sung musical numbers, a few instrumentals, and of course the famous Irish dancing itself. The songs were pretty, but not especially memorable; the instrumentals were more impressive; and of course the dancing was amazing. I guess the show as a whole is supposed to tell the tale of the Irish people, but it was pretty vague and abstract for the most part. Which was fine; you go to see some impressively thunderous and synchronous dancing, and the cast did not disappoint.
