I wore a silk suit and my husband wore a dress jacket and pants. People are dressing rather sloppy for the theater lately. It is a special place and I enjoy seeing the folks dressed up. It makes it seem more special..

Mitsua Market on Paularino, 1.5 blocks east of Bristol on the South side of the 405 has a great food court with all kinds of Japanese Food available. The market has a great "to-go" sushi fare and in the early evening most of the sushi, made that afternoon, is marked down for a quick sale. I especially like the noodle shop closest to the check out stands of the Market, and their spicy Pork Noodles are terrific. More expensive and the best in the food court is the noodle shop in the middle of the court, about 3 stalls to the right of the first noodle shop, to the right of it, is a stall that has a great tempura, teriyaki combo, that I've enjoyed for years. Mitsua Market has wonderful desserts with shops specializing in frozen mochi and pastries, as well as fare only found in Japan. In fact, going to Mitsua is to be transported to an authentic Japanese SuperMarket and Food Court.

Description

Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance is the extravaganza that helped catapult Irish dancing into the global spotlight and created a new wave of Celtic dance mania.

In less than five years, the show has brought a staggering 50 million people worldwide to their feet at sold out theaters, arenas and stadiums.

Michael Flatley, who originated the role of the Lord, serves as the artistic director and continues to oversee all aspects of the production. The first American to win the All-world Championship in Irish Dance, Flatley opened the show in Dublin in 1996 and is listed in The Guinness Book of World Records for having the world’s fastest feet: 35 taps per second.

Said Flatley. “We’ve combined traditional and modern forms of dance to create a high octane blend with soulful beats and feet that move too fast to comprehend.”

The story is a classic tale of good vs. evil based on old Irish folklore as Don Dorcha, the Dark Lord, challenges the Lord of the Dance. It is also a passionate love story that is expressed through dance numbers that transports audiences into a mystical and exhilarating world of intense passion.

The action is played out on a grand scale with precision dancing, dramatic music, colorful costumes, state-of-art staging, lighting and pyrotechnics.
