Riverdance tour returns to the Honeywell Center

Posted: Friday, February 7, 2020

The Riverdance 25th Anniversary tour will return to the Honeywell Center on Tuesday, February 18 at 7:30 p.m. Doors at the Ford Theater open at approximately 6:45 p.m.

Riverdance 25th Anniversary Show is Riverdance as people have never seen it before. A powerful and stirring reinvention of the beloved favorite, celebrated the world over its Grammy Award-winning score and the thrilling energy and passion of its Irish and International dance. Twenty-five years on, composer Bill Whelan has rerecorded his mesmerizing soundtrack while producer Moya Doherty and director John McColgan have completely reimagined the ground-breaking show with innovative and spectacular lighting, projection, stage and costume designs.

Riverdance began its journey as the interval act in the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest, produced for television by Moya Doherty. This electrifying and innovative seven-minute dance piece was then developed into a full-length stage show by Doherty, Whelan and McColgan. With its fusion of Irish and International music and dance, the show broke all box office records during its world premiere run in Dublin in early 1995. When the show transferred to London, the reaction was unprecedented. There followed a hugely successful tour starting in New York in March, 1996, where eight sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall heralded the start of two decades of touring by Riverdance companies throughout North America. Since its inception, Riverdance has packed theatres throughout North America, Oceania, Asia, Europe, South Africa and South America.

Ticket prices include $50, $60 and limited premium seating at $100. Tickets for this performance are available for purchase via HoneywellCenter.org/riverdance or by calling the Honeywell Foundation Box Office at (260) 563-1102.
