Farewell Clog

Don’t act as though you haven’t tried to Riverdance, because everyone old enough to have seen those commercials from the ’90s knows better. But to see how the Irish step-dancing routines really go, see some of the final — as in last-ever — performances of Riverdance in a production at the Independence Events Center (19100 East Valley View Parkway, 816-795-7577) today and Sunday. The fast-stepping show premiered in Dublin in February 1995, but after 15 years and more than 10,000 performances, the cast members are hanging up their shoes. Today’s shows are at 4 and 8 p.m., and Sunday’s are at 2 and 7:30 p.m. Ticket prices range from $43.50 to $82.50. See independenceeventscenter.com for more information.

Sat., Feb. 20, 4 & 8 p.m.; Sun., Feb. 21, 2 & 7:30 p.m., 2010
