I was so lucky to receive tickets* to experience Caravan World Rhythm’s Che Malambo which is an Argentinian All-Male Dance group.
With their overwhelming talent, expert choreography and ability to entertain the crowd, the show was a memorable masterpiece.

Their footwork was a mix of riverdance paired with flamenco and tango. Truly a unique experience! I really enjoyed the humour and singing as well as the impressive tricks they performed by whirling boleadoras – a percussive lasso. It was electrifying. To me, I felt it was very elemental. They resembled a growing flame and a powerful hailstorm.

They will be performing 3 nights in Florida followed by NY & NH.
The story may be familiar as it is based on the 2001 film of the same name! Elle Woods is a sorority girl who decides to attend Harvard Law School to win back her ex boyfriend, Warner Huntington III. She meets Emmett, her Professors’ Teaching Assistant and they quickly become quite chummy. Defining herself as a perfectly capable – and intelligent woman, who just happens to like pink–she learns quickly and helps her new-found Esthetician, quirky Paulette, get her dog back. That small victory was just the beginning. Later in the play she exercises her direct nature and new found knowledge to win a murder case by proving Exercise Queen Brooke Windham innocent of all charges. Along the way Elle’s three friends Margot, Serena and Pilar keep things interesting with their musical numbers and comical interjections.
Julia Ullrich dazzles as the bubbly Elle Woods (surprisingly enough I had seen her as Veronica in Fighting Chance Productions “Heathers: The Musical” where she was absolutely incredible), She powerfully commands the stage.
I have to say, the casting is spot on and all the characters perfectly play their roles. The music is catchy with the “OMIGOD” song carrying you throughout the play.

The choreography and sets were perfectly executed, creating an almost dreamlike ambiance. The orchestra gave me goosebumps, there’s nothing quite like experiencing live music! I was super impressed with the attention to detail which was incredibly pleasing both in a visual and auditory fashion. I have enjoyed Broadway shows and can tell you that the amount of talent on the stage is transcendent. It is the perfect escape!
This marvellous adaptation of the feature film runs from February 2 to the 17th with tickets starting at $27! $15 special pricing on February 12th for Family Day.
