Magnificent Variety Show 2009

Take a trip through the past 7 decades with this cast of talented singers and dancers at the Magnificent Variety show at it's new location - The Osmond Theater.  There are so many costume changes during this show that I lost count.  Practically every song is performed in a different costume.  The evening begins with the cast singing "I Got The Music In Me" and "Celebration", followed by our journey into the 1940's with "Blue Moon of Kentucky", "Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree", and "I Got Rhythm".  We leave the 1940's with little Talya Holden singing "You Are My Sunshine".  To start off the fabulous 50's, we are treated to "Mama Loves Mambo" and "Que Sara Sara".  The songs keep coming like "Bye Bye Love", "Peggy Sue", "Blue Suede Shoes","Great Balls of Fire", and "Johnny B Good".

The 60's and 70's brought us songs like "Going To The Chapel", "RESPECT", "Luck Be A Lady Tonight", "Staying Alive", "One Bad Apple", and of course "YMCA".  The 80's gave us "Girls Just Want To Have Fun", "I'm So Excited", and a favorite of mine "Thriller".  The 90's filled the air with "The Dance", "Unbelieveable", and "Forget About It".  The turn of the century gave us "Bye Bye Bye", "Jesus Take The Wheel", and "Stomp".  I have skipped over lots of the other songs you'll hear to shorten the review.

The second half is filled with songs from musicals like Phantom of the Opera, Bye Bye Birdie, Grease, West Side Story, and Funny Girl.  They end the show with Gospel songs  and God Bless America.  I think the thing that amazed me most about the show was the cast itself - the diversity of voices, the numerous costume changes, and sheer energy to put on a fantastic show.
