Lord of the Dance is an Irish musical and dance production created by Irish American Michael Flatley who also originally took a starring role in the show but now directs one of the most exciting shows in theatreland.
Michael originally found fame in the Riverdance musical but left because of creative differences and to be honest, Good as Lord of the Dance is an eye opener and having seen the man himself come on stage as a guest appearance which he does most weekends (Upto June 27th) while the show is on at London’s Dominion Theatre was just amazing.
I went along on Saturday expecting to sit through a couple of hours of foot stomping to the same song over and over again and how wrong I was. A cast of over 40 dancers kept me glued to my seat with a story of good verses evil to go along with the dancing.
The main leads were just out of this world, the footwork was amazing, James Keegan the lead and goody was just on top form, I didn’t want him to come off stage at anytime and as for the baddie James Breen, well just a perfect match as the Dark Lord took on the good.
