    I hope the show uses lights this year, that was disappointing last year and made me think they were having financial problems (which maybe they are).

    I hope they have lighting this year too... just about didn't buy a ticket because I was so disappointed last year. Thought I would give it one more try...

    What do you folks mean by no lighting. Was the show just done with house lights up? Basic white spots? :huh:

    So, Rippon is the only non-Canadian to be in the show. I wish they had more.

    It's because they all do the USA tour at the same time :lol:(joke)

    I also wish the tour was more international. It's bad USA and Canada Tour are at the same time.

    Exactly. It was like an exhibition skate after a competition - just the basic white spotlights in 'semi-dark' house light conditions. Really disappointing. Made me realize how much difference lighting makes to a skating show.

    I remember reading about the no lights thing last year and I was extremely confused because the lights were exactly as they always are when I saw it. But then I realized that they apparently only lit the show in Hamilton becuase they were taping it for TV. Lucky for me! I wonder if they'll do the same this year.

    If she can wear one of Jessica's exhibition number(what Joannie wore at 2010Olympics Gala) lol, it means that's she's not really tall. From her personnal's website, she's 5'2.

    I'm only 5'0 .. eek now that is short!

    Hopefully they have lighting because it was cheap looking last year. I actually thought that would be the last one I'll go to but likely this weekend will be the last one. I just want to see V&M even though I hate their exhibition LOL.

    I tried to buy a ticket for the show in Victoria but found nothing. Is it really sold out or can it be some trouble on the system?

    LOVED the Intermission number.

    ETA: Midori, I went to the website and checked out ticket availability for Victoria. It appears that tickets are still available. I saw the following small print:

    I got ice seat one month after ticket was on sale,at that time they did not have $25 seats,
    I read article about Victoria venue ,they sold about 650 ticket before Olympic was over(that was 2 months after ticket was on sale)
    It seems they lowed price because it is not selling.
    show two years ago was about half full,so it is very unlikely it is sold out.

    maybe it is better to call box office.
