In the past twenty eight years that I have ushered for the Overture Center (and the preceding venue), I have seen many, many shows, including a variety of dance performances and all of the broadway shows. But, nothing prepared me for DWTS. This was part Las Vegas revue, part Magic Mike, part Broadway, part Alvin Ailey and more! The cast was supremely talented and very personable. The dance performances varied from many Latin classics - paso doble anyone? - to hip hop and ballet/modern dance to rock and roll to waltz. The sound track was gorgeous and varied as well, with many of my favorite contemporary music featured. As a result, the audience was absolutely going nuts from beginning to end!!!! This sold-out show left people grinning from ear to ear and dancing and singing out of the theater. I only hope that DWTS will be back next year.

Think you can dance's road show hit it big at the Fox Theatre, now called the Bob Hope Theatre, in downtown Stockton. There might have been a few empty seats in the back corners, but the good seats were sold out. The audience was very warm and noisy, and as is the style these days, "whooped" with appreciation instead of applause.
The dancers were even better than anticipated from previous appearances on TV. Amazing extensions and elevation. There were no average dancers, all top gypsies! My only complaint was the lighting...the dancers were dimly lighted most of the time, while flashing strobes and LEDs directed at the audience had me closing my eyes in defense. This trendy style of audience insult needs to pass, and quickly. We pay to see what is on the stage, not be blinded by technology. Staging positives? yes, the large screens were able to depict windows and hand painted sets in exquisite detail.
When the heavens broke loose with weather and a light show, it was impressive...

Fantastic way to spend a night in Boston. Seats were fab! 1st row behind orchestra seats, so view was awesome. Would totally take my kids and mom! We ate at Abbey Lane directly across from Wang...steps to our seats.
Only regret is that Val, Alan, Sasha or Gleb did not pull me up on stage!! Will be at show next year!

JUST A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED
I love DWTS and have never missed a single episode in all of it's many seasons on TV. I was especially excited to go see the DWTS Live tour in my hometown of Nashville, TN. Unfortunately, it was pouring rain and there were many long lines waiting to go through security to get into the theatre. Once inside the historic Grand Old Opry House our seats were pretty good in the Mezzanine. I loved seeing all of the Pro dancers up close and personal. The stage is fairly small so it's very different than when you see them perform in the Ballroom on TV with the fancy props, etc. The one real disappointment I had was it was advertised that four celebrity dancers would take part in the Tour this year. I didn't read until after the fact that not "all" would perform in "all cities", but we didn't have one single celebrity here -- not even Bobby Bones who works here or John Schneider. It even stated in the fill-in video that more than the usual one celebrity (the winner) would be on tour.

THAT'S ALL THERE IS?
The dancing part lasted about an hour and a half with about 30 minutes of filler.
The filler consisted of a couple of videos and Bobby Bones once again confirming
that HE CAN'T DANCE. It seemed to me that the cast wanted the show over ASAP
so they could get to Huntsville. I felt the same way.

2022 TOUR BORGATA ATLANTIC CITY
This show was sloppy, a lot of mistakes, and way too much talking. Also, one would think at the beginning of the tour and in Atlantic City of all places, that the winner of the season Iman Shumpert, would be featured. Instead it was the boring Kaitlyn Bristowe. I spent $250 for my ticket and if I had it to do all over again I would take that money and gambled more and have a nicer dinner etc. Total letdown.
