Disney on Ice: Dare to Dream 

When: Dec. 7-11 2011
Price: $12-77

As a kid, I refused to go to ice shows because dancers dressed as characters from animated movies weren't "real." Because ... look, I was a very screwed-up little kid. As an adult, ice skating still failed to appeal to me, thanks to a weak ankle and my general poor sense of balance. That should also be a warning sign against

Disney On Ice: Dare to Dream—it will inevitably inspire some small percentage of children in the audience to loudly request ice skating lessons for Christmas, which will then backfire on parents amid a mountain of bills for stitches and dental work.

This particular show focuses on scenes from a number of classic and more recent Disney princess films, which doesn't really excite me. Why couldn't they try doing something like The Black Hole On Ice? Man, I'd pay to see that. Come to think of it, any number of genre movies would work on ice, such as Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn—On Ice, Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World—On Ice and of course an ice-dancing version of the classic anime Akira. It could only be an improvement on the in-development live-action version with an all-white cast. Anyway, this ice show runs through Sunday; for Wednesday's 7 p.m. opening performance, seats priced $16 and $25 other nights are just $12. (Prices go up to $77 for VIP tickets with dining included). —Zack Smith
