The show was wonderful and the dancers very talented.... having front row seats was a nice plus!

The best thing was a reconstruction of "Harmonica Breakdown." Our Goldstar tix were in the front row, which is not great for watching dance, but the show was not sold out and we were able to move back to great seats.
