Dancin' to Romancin' 

Cheetah Girl and her man cut a rug with the stars at CSU.

Eight celebrities and their dance partners tango tonight in Cleveland in the midst of their nationwide Dancing With the Stars tour. And the live version of the top-rated TV reality show comes with its share of drama, now that its fifth season on the air is history.The tour features Vegas crooner Wayne Newton and pop-singer Marie Osmond from Season 5 as well as former child star Joey Lawrence from Season 3. They're joined by partners Cheryl Burke, Jonathan Roberts, and Edyta Sliwinska. The celebs also bring along a season's worth of controversy and heartache: In its most recent installment, Osmond passed out from an asthma attack in one episode, actress Jane Seymour's mom died the day after another airing, and Cheetah Girl Sabrina Bryan got hot and heavy with partner Mark Ballas, both onstage and behind the scenes. "The fact that Mark and I were able to get so close so quickly was so awesome," Bryan told TV Guide immediately after she was surprisingly ousted early in the competition. "It made everything so comfortable." The stars dance onto the stage at 7:30 tonight at the Wolstein Center at CSU, 2000 Prospect Avenue. Tickets are $49.50 to $165. Call 216-687-9292 or visit
Tue., Jan. 8, 7:30 p.m., 2008
