The How To Train Your Dragon live Spectacular is a never-before-seen U.S. production that opened Thursday and only runs for seven shows through Sunday at The Honda Center. We went, we saw, the kids were slayed (so to speak). Here’s a look from the night. In a nutshell: Poetic music. Cinematic visuals. Strong story. And the dragons were massive. This shot below is from the end of the evening, as the show wrapped.
The event, which was critically acclaimed in Australia and New Zealand, was produced by the storytellers at DreamWorks Animation, and Global Creatures, the masterminds behind the international phenomenon Walking with Dinosaurs, the #1 grossing world tour of 2010.
The show features more than a dozen dragons, some with wingspans of up to 46 feet, as well as Viking warriors and circus artists and acrobats.
Here’s a quick live look from the night (pardon the kid-head popping in frame):
If you’re thinking about going, get on it, as the shows are selling out fast. They just added more seats yesterday, but who knows how long they’ll last.
Also, if you get a chance to catch the show, or any Honda Center events really, from the Suites there, it makes for a very fun evening with four families. We had the chance to sit Suite-side with the OC Family gang and the kids had so much fun all hanging out together.
