Thanks John Labatt Centre (JLC) for the afternoon of magic and being a #JLCreviewer . This was truly a magical afternoon that was enjoyed by the adults as much as the children. The staff at the JLC are as amazing as the show itself. I had a chance to chat with a few of the staff, and they were so courteous and kind. Check out a show there anytime.
I didn’t make it to the Monster Jam show in London at the John Labatt Centre. A headache prevented me from even enjoying it a little.
I sent my husband and daughter off with some of their friends and they had a great time. How do I know!? Well, walking into the house my daughter automatically started talking about it. Going on and on about the Canada Truck and how awesome that truck is! (Northern Nightmare)
The guys all loved how loud it was, although my daughter wearing the ear muff hearing protection still cupped her ears a few times as it was too loud for her.
I don’t know if my daughter would go back to Monster Jam (although just as girl friendly as for boys, mine isn’t a fan of loud) I do know that my husband and his friend had more than enough fun for her. Trucks standing on 2 wheels for extended lengths, the loudness and the crushing of things were enough for these 2 to become regular fans of the sport!
@evilflu – www.twitter.com/evilflu or http://www.evilflu.com/ put a request on Twitter if anyone wanted her other ticket to Cinderella in London Ontario at the Grand Theatre. (http://www.grandtheatre.com/index.php/mainstage-theatre/2011-12-mainstage-season/cinderella/)
I jumped at the chance seeing it is my resolution and everything!I drove down on a Thursday night – January 5th to London Ontario to meet Nikki and to see the show that didn’t dissappoint. I was not disappointed! There was more kissing than the Disney version but that is ok too!
Getting into the Grand Theatre, I loved the set up and realized how none of the seats are a bad seat in the house! I would like to do a balcony seat next time. The people in them seemed to really enjoy the view they had!
As much as I loved the singing / acting from the amazing people on stage – I loved the sets and the design as much. Just like when I went to Disney On Ice, I wasn’t dissappointed with how the sets make the show.
The actors help the sets do their jobs and vice versa. They worked seemlessly together. I am a product of a TV environment. The fact that, while watching, I don’t notice It isn’t a TV screen to me is perfection.
Maybe as I become more of a theatre buff (ok I doubt that) that my expections might raise. I enjoy the feeling of the theatre, being there and seeing live people do things that make them happy. Not only are they happy doing it – they are great at what they do.
Would I recommend it? Yes, as well as I’m sure Nikki @evilflu would recommend it also.
Would I see it again? I don’t think I would be able to see it in the same venue again, I do plan to make the Grand Theatre a regular place to check out their shows from now on. If this Cinderella did come back to a location close to me, I would buy a couple more tickets for sure!
