Review for Lord of the Dance:


Lord of the Dance created by Michael Flatley is the theatrical extravaganza that has helped catapult Irish dancing into the global spotlight. The show features more than 40 dancers who deliver an eloquent and stunning interpretation of one of Ireland’s most famous legends. 

Lord of the Dance is a mesmerizing blend of traditional and modern Celtic music and dance. The story is a classic tale of good vs. evil based on old Irish folklore. It is also a passionate love story expressed through dance. The action is played out over 21 scenes on a grand scale of precision dancing, dramatic music, colorful costumes and state-of-the-art staging and lighting.

LOTD was conceived and choreographed by Creator and Artistic Director Michael Flatley—the American-born world Irish dance champion who originated the role of the Lord and was responsible for creating a new wave of Celtic dance mania. Flatley, who added fresh costumes, a visually stimulating set featuring an LED wall and revised lighting and set designs this year, still oversees all aspects of the production and the numerous LOTD troupes touring internationally. 

The show made its debut performance in 1996 and quickly became the most popular touring dance production in history. More than 60 million people worldwide have seen Lord of the Dance in person at sold-out theaters, arenas and stadiums.

LOTD will perform for one night only at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium. All seats are reserved from $27.50 to $47.50 plus convenience fees.

Lock Her Up? - And Response

Roy Exum: Our Double Travesties

Back when we were kids the old guys taught us how to throw a one-two punch. It’s pretty impressive if you do it right, which is to jab your left fist into the thug’s face and then, as though it was a symphony, complete the combination as you deliver a powerful right cross to the same nose. If the thug has a gun, it doesn’t work as well. But, boy, did our community ever get clobbered ... (click for more)
