Neil Patrick Harris: Broadway is Not For Gays Anymore!

15 Jun 2011  4 Comments

Neil Patrick Harris’ opening number at the 2011 Tony Awards. I think this guy should host every every show that needs hosting out there.

Also during the Tony Awards, Hugh Jackman and Neil preformed a duet.

The Baseball Game

17 Jun 2010  2 Comments

During my long stay here, I was invited more than once to go to a baseball game. As Albuquerque’s Isotopes are doing pretty well in the league. They are not in the major league but the good player move to the LA Dodgers. This wasn’t my first baseball game, I went to the San Diego Padres las year.

So me and the guys who have no idea what baseball is went there and basically treated it like a diwaniya. we were talking during the whole game. The game lasted for more than 3 hours.

The Isotopes won the game and maintained the lead in the league. All I can say is baseball is not my cup of tea.

The picture attached is my first attempt at Panoramas.

Date Night – Review

4 Jun 2010  3 Comments

Yesterday, with no major plan set for the day. I decided to go see Date Night as I was told not to even thing of going to see it in Kuwait because of censorship. After watching it I can see why and imagine how the movie was in Kuwait.

Its a decent movie, its not one of the classics for Steve Carell nor Tina Fey. nut still watchable. And yes it is still showing in the cinemas here.

David Copperfield Show – Review

3 Jun 2010  4 Comments

This is the last of the shows I saw in Vegas I promise, its been hectic seeing 2 shows a day and just eating burgers :/

If you don’t know who David Copperfield is then to put it in a few word: “he is the best magician of our time” if you seen some of his previous work you would agree.

The show was filled with people fro china that where a part of a group that didn’t speak any english. As he brought people up the stage they couldn’t understand him and just stood there staring at him which made the show a little frustrating.

As fort the illusions there was some really cool ones that keeps you puzzled. but there was no “WOW” factor.

David’s show just couldn’t compare to what Vegas have to offer and is the lowest ranking show I’ve seen in this trip.

Cirque Du Soleil: O

1 Jun 2010  No Comments

While I was inquiring about the shows, a lot of people told me that Cirque Du Soleil’s: O was the best show in Las Vega, and it is conveniently located in the Bellagio so it had to be on my list for shows to see.

The show has an aquatic theme to it, its mostly based on water in a 1.5 million gallon water tank that shifts during the show from a deep to shallow to hard surface. it looked really amazing.

The The show on the other hand didn’t mesmerize me the way the other shows had. Its not bad but its not the best Vegas have to offer either. Its mostly a circus act with water being under the performers instead of a net for the most part.

I might be a bit hard on this show cause I had really high expectations. It let me down a bit but still a nice show that costed more than $100 million to make.

The Lion King – Review

30 May 2010  2 Comments

The Lion King is the best disney movie in my opinion. It has a great storyline, lovable characters and great songs. all the requirements for making a great show. But thats not all, it takes skill to adapt a great movie to a Broadway show. But The Lion King already been running for 13 years and its been hailed as one of the best shows. everybody that saw it recommended it. My wife has been telling me to see it for a few years now, I finally did.

After seeing it I also highly recommend watching The Lion King. Its not just for kids and families is a work of art. great singing and costumes and of course the story and characters are all there.

Wayne Brady Show – Review

30 May 2010  1 Comment

If you don’t know who Wayne Brady is let me till you that you missed out on one of the funniest show on TV. He was a co-star in the hit TV series Who’s Line is it Anyway along with Drew Carey, Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie. just go to youtube and type in the “Who’s line is it anyway” and enjoy.

The live show follows the theme of Who’s Line is it Anyway, its all improvised, and there for no 2 shows are ever the same, and I believe it. Seeing Wayne work live in front of you really makes you believe that what he does it nothing short of spectacular.

I laughed so hard that my eyes where in tears for the better half of the show.

If I have time, I will definitely do it one more time.

Blue Man Group – Review

29 May 2010  4 Comments

I attended the Blue Man Group show yesterday evening. I never been to any of their shows before(apart from some youtube videos) so I didn’t know what to expect. But it surpassed my expectations and was pleasantly surprised.

The blue man group is a mix of a Musical/Comedy with no dialect at all and just depends on the body language, but they do it brilliantly.

The only problem I had with the show is that in some instances, it feels that they are just dragging their feet a little. which I feel dropped the tempo of the show. But otherwise its a must see.

When Bolivia’s highest dignitary visited Iran he probably wasn’t quite expecting the feast that awaited him. I leave you with the pictures below.
