Are you a little bit country…or a little bit rock & roll? I grew up watching Donny & Marie on TV and always had a little crush on Donny Osmond and that cute smile of his. Over the years I’ve followed their careers and family life from afar. Then on December 4 Donny & Marie came to Los Angeles. Being that we drive by The Pantages Theatre several days a week on our Hollywood tour, I had seen that they were in town to put on a Christmas show. Our friend Sandro Monetti, a celebrity journalist, told us he had seen it and that not only was it entertaining but very polished and not cheesy at all. Hmmm…suddenly I wanted to go.
Like a good husband, Matt agreed to take me on a Friday night. To help matters, I got tickets on Goldstar for half-price and used a TravelZoo voucher for dinner at Beso before the show. Dinner was just ok but the show was wonderful! There were plenty of Christmas songs plus some of their more modern releases. Great costumes, nostalgic video, lots of audience interaction and more than a few references to Donny winning Dancing With The Stars and Marie’s weight loss thanks to Nutri System. There was even a celebrity in the audience and everyone went home with a candy cane. It was a magical evening and I just may take a trip to Las Vegas to see them in action again!
