Man in the Mirror – The Olympia Theatre

Man in the MirrorLook, it was a last minute invitation from a friend. It’s not something I would have generally gone for. I’ve made my views on Michael Jackson pretty clear before and , although I do like much of his music, I did not have high hopes for this Man in the Mirror Life of Michael Jackson Tribute Show Thing.

I was not expecting much and my expectations were met.

It was one of the most hilariously awful shows I’ve ever witnessed. From the far-too-short Mini-Michael to the crotch obsessed backing dancer, from the backing singer squeezed into her far too small dress to the cheap primary school play set design, this had me laughing in all the wrong places.

Interspersed with poor quality video footage and one-step-up-from-Powerpoint slides, telling the story of Jacko’s life, it’s one for fantatics only.

The positives: 1) the Jackson impersonator, Anthony (Moon) Walker did actually do a decent job of singing; 2) Um…the tickets were free; 3) Eh…nope, that’s about it.

Look, I’d say see this show if you want a good cringeworthy laugh, but at €25+, I suggest you stick on a CD, don your black hat and single glove and entertain yourself in the comfort of your own livingroom.

Man in the Mirror is still touring the country and if you really do want to see it, check out TicketMaster.ie for more details.
