Review of Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show in Pigeon Forge, TN
What is it?
The Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show is a venue in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee where a musical theater production is performed while guests watch the show and eat a meal. It is new in 2011, having replaced the long-running Black Bear Jamboree show in the same theater. The sets are new, the music is new and the dancing is new. It is located beside the Titanic Museum attraction on the Parkway in Pigeon Forge.
Reservations must be made for the performance and it is usually offered twice nightly during peak season. Tickets include the pre-show, large meal and dinner feud show. There are often discount combo-packages available when two or more area show tickets are purchased.
The menu includes fried chicken, pulled pork barbeque, cole slaw, cornbread, soup, pinto beans, mashed potatoes (no gravy) and a delicious chocolate mousse.
The pre-show is some great foot-stomping, hand-clapping, sing-along music. The storyline of the Hatfield & McCoys is played out on stage by some very talented actors, singers and dancers. The feud apparently started 51 years ago when Pa Hatfield stole a pig from the McCoys. Each family tries to outperform the other with music, singing and some entertaining tap dancing.
Audience participation is encouraged and some lucky (or unlucky, as the case may be) adults from both the Hatfield & McCoy sides are chosen to play a competitive relay game onstage that is hysterical.
The production is funny (and corny), the food is yummy and plentiful and the music and dancing are fun. It's definitely a show everyone should see at least once.
Check out the show!
