Heartbeat of Home at the Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre Review

I had the opportunity to catch the Opening Night performance Heartbeat of Home, an electrifying new music and dance spectacular created by the producers and director of Riverdance. The show makes its East Coast debut in a limited engagement at Boston’s Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre, playing Wed., March 26 through Sun., April 6. Heartbeat of Home features the dynamic, vibrant components of traditional Irish, Latin and Afro-Cuban music and dance. The world-class cast of thirty-nine includes a ten-piece band creating a new and electrifying sound. The show featured fantastic dancers including the lead Ciara Sexton. In fact, the dancers are from all over the world. Some auditioned for the opportunity to be in Heartbeat of Home over the internet. This video below gives you a good sense of what the show is like. It’s good for families although it can be loud. There seemed that many step dancing teams made up of teenagers were on hand on the same night that I attended. I enjoyed the performance and from the cheers (yes, CHEERS) that surrounded me, I don’t think I was alone.
