I’m a little late with this review but better late than never ūüôā

I had been saying I needed to go see Fuerza Bruta for over a year – there was talk that the final show would be at the end of December and I couldn’t let it leave NYC without catching it. My¬† boyfriend surprised me with tickets for the December 1st showing and I was ecstatic. The show ended up being more than I could of ever imagined and the ART behind it is incredible. For 50 minutes you are moving around (literally… when the scenes move, you move lol) and dancing and you feel like you are a part of the show. The actors have so much interaction with the crowd from dancing with you to¬† hitting people over the head with glitter boxes to swimming above your head. The DJ keeps the crowd moving the whole time and by the very end you will feel like you are at a large rave where everyone is just having a blast! They even have a huge rainfall where people can dance under until the music stops. – very fast pace and unique!

Fuerza Bruta has now been extended until May. If your in the area, go check it out! Also remember to check online via google and sites such as Livingsocial for discounted tickets!

Here are some pictures from the show:

Last night the EPIC 6 hour long Sandy Relief concert took place in front of a crowd of over 13,000 people at MSG along with 2 Billion viewers that got to watch the concert on 37 tv stations throughout the US and more than 200 others worldwide. It was also streamed on more than 30 internet sites.

While most of us could have done without this outfit…

‚ÄúThe ocean I used to dream about is now their worst nightmare.‚ÄĚ -Billy Crystal

“Tonight, this is a prayer for all my struggling brothers and sisters in New York and New Jersey.” -Bruce Springsteen before performing My City of Ruins

“Hallelujah, Sandy screw ya, We’ll get through ya, Cause we’re Neeeew¬†Yorkers.” -Adam Sandler

The ticket sales alone  have already raised $35 million!

Many people in the NJ/NY area woke up on October 30th not only to massive flooding, down trees and no power but some woke up to everything they have worked for their whole lives РGONE.

I for one am a NJ Girl, born & raised. I don’t think a lot of us really appreciated sites such as the boardwalk that we spent so many summers on until we had to view it like this…

The pictures of people’s¬†homes¬†and businesses gone is devastating. The news stories about the children as well as the men & women who lost their life during this super storm is something no one will ever forget. Normalcy is something that will not¬†return for a while but the amount of support from people and volunteer groups is incredible.¬†Those volunteers are¬†truly the sunshine after such a dark¬† time.

While listening to Elvis Duran I heard them discussing this concert
