Was hopeful of the high energy dancing that has come to be recognised as synonymous with this troupe and was not displeased with some of the dancing, especially the traditional River dance style but the theme of the performance was poor and more akin to a childs' fairy tale story and some of the dancing just wishy washy!! Weak plot... More

Having seen original show was so excited about seeing this. Wish I hadn't bothered. Started off ok then became apparent it was not original music but a new score which was terrible. Spoilt whole thing. The actual dancing was superb but the costumes looked stupid. Joggers and hoodies!!! It has lost its Irish pagan feel in an attempt to sex... More

I loved the original Lord of the Dance. I loved the evocative music of Ronan Hardiman, I loved the spine-tingling choreography; I loved the understated but sexy costumes; and I loved Flatley's bravura dancing. It was perfect in every way; a masterpiece. How depressing then to revisit LOTD in its "Dangerous Games" retread and realize I hated every moment of... More

I am a big Michael Flatley fan and was willing to pay extra to travel to London to see dangerous games.....where were you Michael? A 3D hologram on a Saturday matinee was not good enough. Absolutely gutted, so much that I cried, if I'd wanted to see the show without you, I could have waited for the UK tour.

Went to see this show, we thought it was fantastic, as one of our friends was not keen, she completely changed her mind thought it made you feel happy and left you with a smile on your face. The male lead dancer was amazing, Michael Flatley comes on towards the end, which I suppose finishes it off x

I've just been to tonight's production of Michael Flatley's Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games. I thought the theatre was lovely, very posh-looking and a lovely environment. I disagree with Peter B's review. I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but from where I was sitting I had a great view of the dance action. I could hear... More

Saw the show today. Some good visual effects but the standard was not up to the west end. the girl singer was dreadful and should be singing in pubs. The most disappointing thing was that Mr Flately only appeared at the very end of the show for only a few minutes. His dancing was mostly on film and not live... More

Our first visit to the London Palladium and we were not disappointed we received excellent service from the Box Office and all other theatre staff. The current show Michael Flatley’s Lord of The Dance - Dangerous Games is very entertaining with brilliant graphics such as the ticking clock in the opening scene although I thought that the self-praising overview of...
