Friday December 18, 2009 / 6:00pmMotown Review: Hitzville - The Show
How was your experience?
We got our tickets through Goldstar and paid an additional $11 to upgrade to VIP seats. Although the seats printed an actual seat number, in fact the seats were not numbered, so the people who got in the second row before we did got a bit better seats. We had been to the Fab Four show before at the same theater complex and knew the venue was going to be small, but to us that was a plus. It was great to sit just a few feet away from the stage - well worth the additional money. The drinks were expensive, but that's Vegas, baby! No surprises. As to the show itself, we both thought it was terrific. It was great to be able to see so well, and the sound was excellent. Jin-Jin Reeves, who portrayed most of the female leads, was full of energy and could really sing well. The other female singers were also energetic and great singers. The male entertainers were also great, in both voice and movement, and the band cooked. The bass player was no James Jamerson, but was ok. The guitar player did some humorous stuff in the background. Each musician was accomplished. Altogether it was a great show. At the end, the entertainers were available for meeting, handshaking, and autographs. We got Jin-Jin's CD as well as a DVD of the show. Altogether good value for money, and everyone left with a smile on their face.
