I just got back from Stars on Ice in Seattle. It was a great show as usual. All the skaters were excellent. There was this sexy man number that was sublime. John K. Kurt, Ryan, and John Z in muscle shirts in the dark with little stand-up spotlights to this lovely song. Ryan Bradley was a great addition to the cast. He skated to Footloose and a Frank Sinatra song. Ilia rocked it as usual. I loved his number to Who Wants to Live Forever. Sinead and John did a lovely number to Jeremy's free program music. Sasha was really good. She didn't do any jumps but had other qualities that made up for it. Her number to Big Spender was fantastic. John and Kyoko haven't missed a beat. They did their scary "fly high and say die" move again. They did miss a lift in their second number but it turned out ok. Kurt Browning was entertaining as usual. The cast gave it their all. The show doesn't have the over-the-top special effects that they've had in the old days but it's still great. I feel very lucky that Seattle was one of the few stops on the tour.
