RIVERDANCE Comes to the Pantages, 11/15-20
The original international phenomenon, RIVERDANCE, the thunderous celebration of joyful music, song and dance that has tapped its way onto the world stage thrilling millions of people around the globe, will return for one week only to the Pantages Theatre, opening November 15, 2011 - exactly 15 years to the day the show originally premiered at the landmark Hollywood venue. When RIVERDANCE first played the Pantages Theatre in 1996, the engagement completely sold out by opening night, thereby ingraining itself as a true Southland blockbuster.

Composed by Bill Whelan, produced by Moya Doherty and directed by John McColgan, RIVERDANCE - now in its 16th phenomenal year -- has played over 10,000 performances and been seen live by more than 22 million people in over 350 venues throughout 40 countries across four continents. They have traveled well over 600,000 miles (or to the moon and back!), played to a worldwide television audience of two billion; sold over three million copies of the Grammy Award-winning CD (certified Platinum in the US) and over 10 million videos (making it one of the best-selling entertainment videos in the world!)
RIVERDANCE had its world premiere at the Point Theatre, Dublin, in February 1995, where it opened to unanimous critical acclaim. An innovative and exciting blend of dance, music and song, RIVERDANCE draws on Irish traditions, and The Combined talents of the performers propel Irish dancing and music to the present day, capturing the imagination of audiences across all ages and cultures. This extraordinarily unique show features an international company performing to the music of Bill Whelan.
