Still Riverdancing after 20 years

It’s all about the dancing. It is “Riverdance,” after all, which for two decades has been bringing the beat of traditional Irish step-dancing to audiences around the world. Here’s what it’s not: A musical. Or a ballet. There’s no storyline really, no plot. There are themes, but they’re just an excuse to display some fancy footwork. Really, “Riverdance” is a collection of vignettes, and once you realize that, the easier it is to enjoy the show. Because it is enjoyable. It’s lively and entertaining – and perfectly family friendly/Carolyn Lamberson, SR. More here.

Question: I plan to see Riverdance this weekend. How about you?
