Monday, April 4

Over the weekend we all went to see “Riverdance” playing up at Kingsbury Hall on the University of Utah campus. It was pouring down rain, so being indoors at a theatre was a perfect idea; the only problem being the long walk to and from the place. Like most University events, parking is always a problem and in fact you might consider yourself lucky to find a spot within a quarter mile.

I remember seeing the original “Riverdance” eons ago on a public television station, back when Michael Flatley was running the show. The performance was stunning and kept are interest for the entire hour and a half program. This time it was not the original cast and somehow it showed; it lacked the power that I was expecting. As Karin put it, “It’s just a lot of tap dancing!”

So as they do on facebook, I would give it a thumbs down!
