Dangerous Games


I still remember the day - well okay, maybe not the exact day - when I saw Lord of the Dance for the first time. Sure it was on video, rather than on the stage, but at seven years old, I was hardly going to make the trip to Ireland for a crowded and overwhelming stage debut.

No, I was much happier snuggled up with my mum as Michael Flatley sprang across the stage, somehow making tap dance look macho. Dramatic lighting, rhythmic shoe tapping, and lively music brought everything to life. There was a storyline about an evil dark lord, but all this went above my head. I was just mesmerised by the spectacle of it all.



Almost twenty years later, Michael Flatley his making his farewell performance in a final show at the London Palladium. Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games is a darker tale based on Irish folklore, and runs until the 25th October with tickets costing between 25 - 108.
