Db was dancing among us all night, exchanged a few words. What a guy, what a show. Will write more later but if you get a chance go see this!

Maybe I would have liked it as a show.

I saw it first at Carnegie Hall. Liked it. Then I heard bits and pieces of the album and, without DB singing the songs, hated it.

The musical production is so completely different. The women singers were excellent, as they were at Carnegie Hall. The male parts were sung at Carnegie by DB and I liked them more that way, sung by him, But the males singers also did a great job for this production...

And the production is something worth noting and experiencing...it's a nightclub atmosphere when you first walk in and mingle with dancing stage hands and then the show starts with a DJ in an elevated booth. Long story short you become part of the show, it takes place around you, above you and at times with you.

DB hung around casually, intertwined among the 150 max capacity "audience". Here Lies Love is a beautiful song and props to the singer. Overall a very cool experience.

This show has received a bunch of positive reviews and has been extended a few times. I didn't pay too much attention until I read DB saying that it was the best thing he's done since SMS.
