There is a place for reality TV shows in which appalling people do amusing things; everyone likes a nice train wreck. But the most engaging reality shows involve talent and skill—and we don’t mean a talent for being the biggest jerk on the island. Since its 2005 debut on Fox, So You Think You Can Dance has been one of the most compelling of these shows because, aside from the glitz and the glam, it features real aspiring dancers working toward their big show-biz break.
On Tuesday, the So You Think You Can Dance Tour will bring the ninth-season finalists (Audrey, Chehon, Cole, Cyrus, Eliana, George, Lindsay, Tiffany, Will and Witney) to the Palace Theatre stage. According to the promoters, audiences will be treated to “all the sizzling, one-of-a-kind dance routines they expect” from the TV version.
So You Think You Can Dance Tour 2012 will step on to the stage of the Palace Theatre (19 Clinton Ave., Albany) on Tuesday (Nov. 20) at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $39.50-$65. For more info, call 465-3334.
