Last year, we saw Tustin's Curtain Call Dinner Theater take its final bow. This year, starting on Feb. 1, Anaheim will up the net gain of dinner theaters by one. Battle of the Dance is Medieval Times meets Dancing With the Stars--a dinner theater show that aims to cover Bollywood, Michael Flatley and everything in between while serving you food and libations. Think of The Evolution of Dance, but done by a whole troupe and with pyrotechnics.
The $10 million project is currently hiring and putting the finishing touches on its building at 2232 S. Harbor Blvd., where a long-vacant Toys R Us building stood. It may not be Spider-Man, but methinks there's a market for this. Just ask your wife or girlfriend.
For the $60 base admission price, you get to see 30 to 40 performers get out of breath while you eat a full meal: appetizers, shrimp Caesar Salad or vegetable soup, prime rib or chicken, mashed potatoes with "seasonal vegetables," and dessert. Let's see the AMC Theater top that spread. . . .
