  • Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games
    Matt Vasquez

    Eight and a half minutes during 1994's Eurovision Song Contest's interval, is all it took to catapult Irish dancing to new levels that firmly imprinted itself in the mind of a global audience. Michael Flatley and Jean Butler became overnight superstars. Destroying box office records all over the world with the now legendary 'Riverdance' - Irish Dance was here to stay.

    Following Flatley's departure from 'Riverdance', came the creation of 'Lord of the Dance'. Undoubtedly, 'Lord of the Dance' is Michael Flatley's masterpiece, a tour de force of technical skills and showmanship, all executed in the unmistakable Flatley style that has proved to be a seminal piece of work for other Irish dance shows.

    In his latest reincarnation, 'Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games', Flatley maintains his unashamedly, in your face, pure entertainment. The grandeur of the London Palladium, which has hosted some of the biggest names in show business, is more than apt as the venue to house the Irish dance fantasy, as we are transported through several locations via the magic of large video screens and a rousing musical score that firmly places you in the centre of this Irish fantasy.

    This reincarnation proves to be more accessible to a wider, more diverse audience than its predecessor, as the production provides something for everyone. An outlandish spectacle of the classic 'good versus evil' story; a spirit has a dream in which the Lord of the Dance (spectacularly played by James Keegan) must battle the Dark Lord and his disciples so that she will re-awaken from her nightmare. Complete with a contortionist; female dancers with legs that don't seem to stop; illuminating dancing robots; a villain with more fetish get up that would make any 'Fifty Shades of Grey' fan proud and Irish former 'Girls Aloud' star Nadine Coyle as the Goddess Erin and Flatley himself complete the line up.

    Sadly, Nadine Coyle proves to be the weak link in the show as she seems to smile and coast her way through some songs, like a Norma Desmond character that never really soar to the heights that they were intended; desperately trying to hang on to past glories of her former girl group days. The strength of the show lies firmly in a line of dancers performing in unison, to the rising title track 'Lord of the Dance'. However, it is the entrance of Flatley himself, albeit brief, that turns a usually polite, pliant, well behaved British audience into our more vocal and expressive American counter-parts.

    At 56, Flatley proves that he still has star power and the attraction clearly lies in his unashamedly level of confidence and intense self-promotion that has clearly ensured that 'Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games' is a massive commercial success.
