The Spirit of Christmas kicked off last night in City West.Guest where treated to the music a wonderful gospel choir as they arrived while Santa Claus himself posed for photos with the young children.
The show itself features a cast of 32 mostly dancers with 3 main singers belting out all your favourite Christmas tunes. The second half of the show is defiantly better then the first and City west could do with making the whole environment a little bit more like Christmas and more of a theatre feel. At times it was like watching a tracked show in the old point that you know really belongs in the likes of the Gaiety or Olympia theatres but one thing was clear the Christmas party season had arrived. So if every chessy Christmas song crammed into the one show are for you thing then this is your show to see this Christmas season.
However you have seen the New York show this version does not measure up production wise.
Guests included RTE presenters Emma O Driscoil and Brian Ormond. Singer Paul Byrom, Journalist Francis Winston, Eugene Masterson and writer Marisa Mackle, Julian Benson, Catriona O Conor and TV3 gossip correspondence Mr. Noel Cunningham
