Odyssey Dance Theatre: Thriller

Today after the girls and I woke up and had some chocolate pancakes, we decided to go and see if there was anyway to get tickets to see Odyssey Dance Theatre’s Thriller! We went last year and had a blast. Fortunately for us, they do buy one get one free tickets on the day of a show and so I added those to cart and we got ready to go to the matinee showing.

Reasons why I love THRILLER from Odyssey:
1. I love Michael Jackson.
2. I love watching dancer’s do the Thriller dance.
3. I love the dance with the Frankensteins, and the Irish dancers at the end.

Reasons why I hate THRILLER from Odyssey:
1.They hit a sweet spot with me that will probably make me decide to not go back in future years – they did some overly long clown skit and offensively gestured to the clown being crazy. I don’t know why, but it really turned me off, and ruined the end of the show for me. It wasn’t even funny, clever, or important – but it was added anyways…and it kind of broke my heart.

Other than that, the rest of the 2 hours and 45 minutes were quite good. Melinda came with us this year, and she enjoyed it and so did the girls.

What do you think?

  1. Yeah, the crazy clown act was TERRIBLE and completely offensive. That show would’ve been a lot better if it had been 45 minutes shorter. I loved the dancing and some of the acts were super cool, but the crazy clown kinda ruined it for me, too.

  2. Bad, terrible clown. Not enough dancers on the stage. Comedy skits are corny! Female Frankenstein was fabulous and Opening song was great. Other than that, we left early…….
