I attended the SOI show in Philly last night. My husband and I were in on-ice seats.
The show was FANTASTIC this year! One of the top 3 of the 11 we've been to.
I'm not a great review writer but I'll make some comments.
I loved the music. I've read a lot of complaints that there was "too much rock/popular" music in the show. Not in my opinion!
Alexei's "scarf hanging" was fantastic. He looked in total control. It got a lot of ooohhhs and aaaahhh's from the crowd. My husband and I enjoyed it immensely.
I have to agree with the gossip about Sarah being on the heavy side. But she did not seem to be having any trouble keeping up and I thought she skated with GREAT JOY and GRACE!
Katia's numbers were wonderful, Jamie and David's were great. I even enjoyed Mike Weiss, and I am not really what you'd call a "fan" of his.
I just cannot say anything negative about the show at all....except it was over with too quickly!
My husband and I got to shake Elena and Anton's hands at the end of the show.
