Last night we finally made it to see Disney On Ice: Magic In The Stars. The show was sold out and I understand why! It has been a few years since our last Disney On Ice event. It has always been magical, and it still was magical last night. The evening’s review crew was myself and my younger two, ages 6 and 8. Mickey and his crew lead us on a journey through the stars visiting classic Disney favorites and current hit sensations.
On January 10, 2024, my husband and I attended the Discover Boating, Beach Club, Opening Night VIP Party at The Chicago Boat Show at McCormick Place. We have been going to the Boat Show for years. It was a lot of fun to attend the inaugural VIP Party. We had such a good time at the party, we did not get to see much of the show. We went back later that weekend with our children and family friends to enjoy the show more.
**** Recommended If you and your family like holiday music, colorful costumes and awesome circus acts, Twas the Night Before by Cirque du Soleil is the show for you. Constantly changing lights illuminated the huge snowy shelf/slide on the Chicago Theatre stage as cast members leapt up and slid down! Cirque du Soleil performers never fail to amaze audiences with their strength and grace.
“The Greatest Show On Earth” starts and ends with a full ensemble performance. It runs a little over two hours with an intermission.
SuperMotoCross (SMX) is a new venture in dirt bike racing as of this year. The SuperMotocross World Championship Playoff raced at the Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois, the final race takes place in California on September 23.
Monster Jam – Rosemont || Tonight was an epic show for Monster Jam! I have never seen a crowd this large at this event, it took an hour to get from the expressway exit to our seats.
**** Recommended **** After selling out a performance of "Late Night Catechism" during the winter, Theatre at the Center brought Sister back in "Put the Nuns in Charge", another in the "Nuns 4 Fun: series developed by Vicki Quade. Quade herself came to Munster for this performance and Mother Superior had everyone laughing. 3 ½ Spotlights
Theatre at the Center’s John Denver Musical Tribute starring Ted Vigil was a wonderful afternoon of music. Vigil said he’s not a John Denver imitator, rather he’s a John Denver tribute artist. He entertained the sell-out audience for just over 2 hours with a song list including most of Denver’s hits.
If you were a fan of Don Knotts, then Karen Knotts’ nostalgic tribute to her father, Tied Up in Knotts! is the show for you. Of course it’s full of stories, pictures and video clips from Knotts career, but there are a lot of family stories too.
Me and my review crew were unsure what to expect with this event. We have seen other “Live” events and “Truck” shows and this live action show was none of those. We arrived early for the advertised pre show event where props from the show were displayed on the stage and we could navigate through the area and grab a few photos. This is where we saw a dinosaur (Triceratops) upfront and personal. I am uncertain of the scale they are built to, but it is amazing to visually see the representation in size.
