Orchestra Rows R-ZZ
How was your experience?
Even though the show was short, it was so much fun. The voice of Old Blue Eyes was soothing and beautifully accompanied by an amazingly talented live band. (The saxophone player was particularly phenomenal!). The dancers were great, but I did have some trouble understanding each of the stories they were trying to tell. Still, they were often breathtaking to watch. The apron-wearing klutz-like male dancer stood out among his peers as having amazing control of his body, great fluidity, and a talent for making his klutz-moments look actually klutzy (which I imagine takes some great skill and control of one's body). My favorite numbers included any with this male dancer, the Come Fly Away number, the -- ah, HOT number (clothes were being ripped off, I suddenly thought I might've gone to different show because while Sinatra can be sexy, I didn't expect it to be quite SO sexy -- but I did not find it objectionable at all. In fact, I felt the show was enhanced by this steamy number) -- and the final number. Overall, enjoyable though short and sweet.
