Show Review: Donny & Marie
I never thought IÆd be writing a review praising Donny freaking Osmond, butà heÆs an amazing performer. And so is his sister! A lifetime in showbiz has honed both of their skills to perfection û they know how to work a stage, and a crowd, until even the jaded cynics (ahem) are won over. Their energy, self-deprecating humor, and unflagging enthusiasm grab hold of you in a completely irresistible way. Within the first few moments of the show, I found myself grinning uncontrollably û the show is that much fun.
