JOE TINOCO PRODUCTION
Magnificent 7 P.M. Show


Heath Hawkins of Branson Critic Online Reports

This 7 p.m. show is MAGNIFICENT!

No, this dinner and show is MAGNIFICENT!

Do you like lobster or filet of beef? What about classic rock or Broadway tunes? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you too will think this dinner and show is MAGNIFICENT.

Though a dinner show is not a unique concept in Branson, this one is a little different. Candi and I arrived at the White House Theatre at about 6:00 p.m. for dinner. Prior to the show you choose between several dinner options ranging from chicken or New York Strip Steak to Shrimp and Lobster. All entries come with fresh tossed salad; warn bread, a soft baked potato or rice pilaf and a delicious slice of white chocolate cake.

The dinner is separate from the show. Dinner is served in the theatre, but you do not watch the show from your table. We were seated at a private table covered with a linen tablecloth and lit by candlelight. It was a very romantic feeling environment.

The service was very good. Our waitress greeted us promptly and it was not long before the first course of our meal arrived. My fillet of beef was cooked to perfection and the butterfly shrimp was both crisp and juicy. In my opinion, the food was good enough that the restaurant could stand on its own.

The dinner is an add on to the ticket, so be sure to ask about it when you make a reservation. It is only about $5 extra when you reserve you show tickets. You will not find a meal like this anywhere in town for $5. You would be luck to find it for less than $20. You will want to make it part of your evening.

Between dinner and the show there was plenty time to browse the gift shop and look around the unique lobby. I had been to this theatre before when The Promise was playing, but the new owners made changes to the décor inside and out. A picture of every president hung proudly on the walls of the lobby. Fitting for the White House Theatre. I was never able to make a connection between the name of the theatre and the name of the show.

And now on to the show . . .

Sometime before 7:00 p.m. we made our way to our seats. We were about eight rows back and right in the center of the row. Normally Candi and I hate to be in the center of the row because the seats are small and you are crowded. Not here! My wife commented several times about how comfortable the seats were.

The curtain went up right on time to reveal a very classy stage. There was a band/orchestra of course. However, they were not the focus of the show. They almost seemed to be part of the set. The stage was very big and decorations were at a minimum. The entertainment was allowed to take center stage.

I have to admit that I never knew that just music could be so much fun. If you read my reviews on a regular basis, it is no secret that I love to see the shows that promote the comedy aspect of their show. I had not seen this show promote comedy at all. I was a little concerned that I would not enjoy this type of show. What if I get bored!

I did not get bored! This show was nonstop, high impact entertainment. The leads Joe, Amanda and Tamra were amazing. They were supported by one if the most versatile ensembles in Branson.

Joe Tinoco, the lead male vocalist is also one of the show producers. You might have seen him in movies or on TV. His wife Tamra Holden toured with Lee Greenwood and she is fresh off her own show with Disney Cruise. The third member of the leading cast, Amanda, has won Branson’s Young Entertainer of the Year twice. I knew the show was going to be great.

Each of them had the opportunity to strut their stuff with a solo set that showed off their amazing talent. I was most impressed by Amanda who came out yodeling. Singers with this unique talent have always entranced me—wow!

The first half of the show continued with a tribute to some of the most famous duos and groups in music history. We meet the Andrew Sisters and Everly Brothers. Then they moved on to the colorful characters of the 50’s, 60’s and beyond with the Beetles, Supremes, Jackson 5, Pointer Sisters, B-Gees. Finally closing out with the Judds and the Oak Ridge Boys. I was wrong about their not being any comedy in the show. This run was hilarious, and the best was yet to come.

I have heard of the Singing Elvis Show in Las Vegas, but I have never been there myself. Let me just say that when they bring a dozen Elvis impersonators all out at once on the same stage, Hurricane Graceland strikes land in Branson and leaves nothing behind but the pain of intense laughter. I promise that you will not find anything funnier in Branson.

If the show had ended right then with the "Elvis" I would have left a happy man, but there was still and entire second half to go.

The last half of the show got underway with a tribute to Broadway with songs from musicals like Oklahoma, Cats, Grease and everyone’s favorite, Annie.

There was plenty song and dance, but what Branson show would be complete without a rousing tribute to the armed forces. The Magnificent 7 have an unusual spin. Their tribute will get your toes tappin’ and before you know it you are on you feet.

The band is smashing, the dancers are so talented, the chorus is at the top of their game, the headliners are well deserving, the food it gourmet, the seats are roomy, and the White House Theatre is one of the nicest it town. These are at least seven basic reasons that the Magnificent 7 P.M. Dinner and Show has to be one of the top seven best shows in Branson. It should be on your itinerary while in town.

The Magnificent 7 P.M. Show is performed at the White House Theatre. The theatre is located on Gretna Road, behind the Red Top Factory Merchants Mall. The show is performed a 7:00 p.m. every Monday through Friday night. For more information visit www.bransonwhitehousetheatre.com

USING LAZINESS AS INSPIRATION.

Laziness has been my inspiration. I became a musician to keep from getting a real job.

I do some of my best work while sitting still and staring out a window.

I don't sit on park benches anymore because strangers come up and wave mirrors under my nose to see if I'm breathing. Squirrels bury their nuts in my pocket.

I do a minimum of exercise to stay alive, but I don't like it very much. I brag about it after I do it.

I like hard working folks, (Somebody has to get the paper and fix the car,) but most of them look at me funny because I sleep through half of their day. I suspect that day people are a little prejudiced against us night crawlers.

I think I'm fairly healthy and look young for my age. I attribute my well being to things like these: I stay out of the sun, like a good vampire, and I don't use an alarm clock.

I never get indigestion from junk foods, but I always get sick on health foods. I don't like to take too many pills,
although I admit I walked around for many years with an illegal smile.

I believe if I stay away from doctors I'll probably live longer.

I smoked and drank my share early in life, and I've retired from all that hilarity. It was too much work anyway.

Most work saving devices were invented by guys who were looking for the easy way.

As long as I have a car, I won't jog. My car is not new, but it's paid for, so I don't have to go to work to make payments.

I take little walks late at night, so I don't need a treadmill. I don't want to wear out my body.

I don't recommend these practices to anybody else. They just seem to work for me.

A wise man once said: "One way to gain respect without actually doing anything, is to be an early riser."

Another wise man said this: "Never do today what you can put off 'till tomorrow. You might get out of the whole thing."

There was one more wise man, but he he didn't say much.
