A video of Mitchell's performance of Electricity this afternoon is up on youtube.

The final turn sequence is something special - I haven't seen him pull this out in the theatre before.

Mitchell has always been a great spinner. But this looks like a "go for it" kind of situation. 8-) I don't think he would be allowed to vary from the assigned choreography in the show itself.

The same was true of Drew Minard. Both he and Mitchell are amazing spinners, but the choreography of the VPT seems to restrict that.

I recall counting 32 spins at the end of Electricity in Schenectady a year ago from Mitch. Such speed! And who can forget Drew's spins in this Youtube video?

There are now multiple versions of the WA Live number posted on Youtube.
