I was impressed with the men's group. Their performance was outstanding. However, overall I was disappointed. I believe that most Americans come to functions such as this, expecting to see a bit of Ireland. Yet that was lacking. Instead, the...continued

This show was a far cry from the impressive one I saw staged at the Pantages Theater many years ago- one in which the band was an integral part of the overall production by appearing physically to the left of the stage. Watching the use of a...continued

As an Irish-American I found this disappointing. It was more Las Vegas than Dublin.

Excellent show, full of energy and showmanship. The noise of all those feet tapping in unison was electrifying! I thought it was terrific, and even my husband, who went under protest, enjoyed it very much.

I've always wanted to see Lord of the Dance and when it became available on Gold Star I decided to go. It seemed like all the Gold Star purchasers were clustered in one spot at OC Performing Arts Center. The view was lacking which impacted the...continued

The men were strong but I was not impresses by teh womens dancing at all and I was confused by elements of modern dance and ballet that I did not think belonged. I wanted to see the power of traditional Irish dancing. Very dissapointing as a whole.

It is generally a good show. The dancing is excellent. Some of the other parts of the show are less than inspiring.

As for the event: enjoyable, good rythms, and excellent performances (males better than females)but costumes were a bit simple and repetitive.

Great show....seats were a little off to the side, but the dancing was amazing. The story line was a little cheesy in places, but overall very good.

This was a rousing experience, even from the back rows with binoculars. The one costume change to flourescent outfits was uncalled for. The program did not give credit to any of the dancers. Only the Orange County Register identified the 'Lord...continued

We enjoyed this show. I had wanted to see one of Michael Flatley's productions for a long time, and this was a wonderful opportunity to have dinner at South Coast Plaza and walk on over to the Performing Arts Center for the show. I do agree with...continued

I'd been wanting to see this show for years but every time it came through I didn't have the money, forgot about it, etc. I thought the dancing was amazing at first then each scene was the same steps pretty much but different costumes and I soon...continued

It was ok. It could have been better. The male dancers were great. The singing was average. The show should have been more Irish.

Overall an excellent experience. A show the whole family would enjoy, and a nice introduction to Irish music and folklore. Some elements are not typically Irish, like the neon dressed dancers, or those who take off their dresses. Yet the dancers...continued

I was excited to see that Lord of the Dance was back in the area. I had taken my daughter to see them perform 1 1/2 years ago. I thought this would be the perfect birthday gift for her because we enjoy Irish dancing so much! Imagine our...continued

I enjoyed the performance very much. I felt the story was very similar to West Side Story, but with an interesting Irish influence. The dancing and music was very lively and I found that much of the audience joined in by tapping their feet and...continued
