Watched the show on TV with the family, Great entertainment, brilliant show…..BUT I was not alone whenever the lead male dancer came on, we all just wanted to slap him. especially when he smiled. reminded us of self opinionated back stabbing actors, nearly spoiled the show

Saw this show in Birmingham in summer 2010. Sadly it was a serious disappointment. Live music was non-existent and the majority of the footwork was nothing more than a synchronous effort to match the amplified backing track. I loved the original Butler/Flatley version, but don’t pretend the new version is World class. It is a brilliant concept and Whelan’s music is second to none but let’s not pretend that current productions match the original presentations. Sorry, but dance karaoke comes to mind.

Are some of the dancers that are in this performance in the 2002 Geneva recording?

I am wondering because one of dancers in this one looks like they were in the Geneva one.
