The whole dynamic is excellent. Marie drops a joke, the lights are flashing, the music is loud, but not obnoxious. There are dancers, and all you hear are their beautiful voices. I have been following them since I was a child and there I was, 47 years old and clapping like a child! It was this energetic and amazing feel to the whole thing. Donny will walk through the crowds and that was simply amazing. This is a definite must see.
