Tres Chic Style was treated to a delightful Opening Night Performance last night of Walking With Dinosaurs courtesy of the fabulous team at Madison Square Garden. I must admit the commercials/advertisements had me excited and the kid in me has always held an affection for these prehistoric reptiles.
About the Show:
Walking With Dinosaurs is a brilliant production based on the award-winning BBC Television Series. The show originated in Australia and has been captivating audiences since 2007. The show proved to be such a sensation, a North American tour was quickly conceived. In three short years the show's two companies have played to over 4.4 million people worldwide and generated over $210 million dollars in overall ticket sales. The show consists of 17 dinosaurs. 10 large (weighs 1,6 tons) , 5 suit dinosaurs(Pretty Big too) and 2 baby puppets.
Our center stage seats proved to be some of the best in the house. The Garden's floor was transformed into a 76 million year old habitat. Guided by Huxley, the resident Paleontologist; curious audience members (myself included) was taken on a journey through the world where dinosaurs once ruled.
An adult brachiosaurus and his offspring share a special moment in the show...
I must admit, these life size marvels ran the court a lil' bit faster than my beloved New York Knicks.... *Tee-Hee*
BBC brought the huge reptiles to life and did accomplished a dynamic feat. The crowd favorite, the revered Tyrannosaurus Rex exploded onto the arena floor to thunderous applause. As T-Rex roared onto the crowd of each corner of the Garden, the thousands of adults and children were amazed as she made a very realistic curtain call across the arena floor.
In 90 minutes we traveled millions of years and were treated to an educational travelogue and ultimately Walked With Dinosaurs......
