Observations from Donny & Marie:
*Average age of the crowd: 67
*We sat with a mother & daughter from Texas who were giddy with excitement. Totally pegged them to be Mormon -- until they got a little more giddy with the Vodka.
*There was a lady in the row below us with the favorite 80s accessory: the banana clip
*The old people rushed the souveneir stand after the show. They were hot after the D & M / Las Vegas sign flashing button.
*Did you know the Osmond brothers sang a true gritty rock song called 'Crazy Horses'? YouTube it. It was bad in the 70s. It's still bad 40 years later.
*I might have had the giddiness rub off on me when Donny rocked 'Solidier of Love'. I spent an entire summer in 1989 waiting time & time again for that song to come on the radio so I could tape it.
*Marie is the definition of having stage presence & being a real show-woman. Her wardrobe was fun too....a few too many sequins & tule never hurt!
Overall -- I give it 2 thumbs up. For those SUU alums -- it was like Acclamation on steroids. An appropriate amount of Mormon jokes. An abundance of brother-sister scripted banter. Highly enjoyable!
