Music is a force powerful enough to calm a baby, soothe a wild beast, or compel the two to dance with each other. Be overcome by this GrouponLive to see Lord of the Dance created by Michael Flatley at Toyota Presents Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford. For $20, you get one G-Pass for seating in balcony sections 300–303 on Sunday, February 10, at 7 p.m. (up to a $35 value, including all fees). Doors open at 6 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
For 16 years and across 68 countries, the ensemble of traditional Irish dancers who make up Lord of the Dance have thundered across stages with kicks, taps, and twirls, all while keeping their upper torsos patently still. Jaws drop as dance principal James Keegan storms the stage, showcasing the skills that earned him numerous international championship titles in Irish dance and the role of the Lord of Dance at age 19. Twenty-one scenes tell the ultimate tale of good versus evil as lights shimmer across colorful costumes and a fiddle pierces the rhythmic Celtic drumming that heralds the battle between the Lord of Darkness and the Lord of Dance. Tethered to the show’s dramatic plotline is a romance, proving that love has no bounds, just as teeth marks found in blocks of cheese prove roommates have no shame. Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
