Nice! cirque du soleil puts on a fantastic show. Do you know which show is coming to town? I saw the one Orlando and it was simply fabulous. My buddy knew someone in it and she gave us a whole bunch of tickets, but after the show I said to myself I totally would've paid to see that.
I've got my tickets. It's definitely worth the price in my opinion. You're going to shell out at least as much money for decent seats at any of the Broadway-style plays downtown, and you can go to those any time. (I'd say Cirque has better music/more artistic merit anyways, not to mention being more enjoyable just on a 'fun' basis). Plus, it's such a spectacle live. The crazy clowns that terrorize the audience are great. I have fond memories of them making old-folks do backflips, stealing children's candy while picking them up by the legs, poking fun at the bald-headed people, etc, etc.. The videos do not compare. (plus, they never screw up in the videos, how boring is that?)
I've gone to see it three times and each time has been AMAZING. Always worth the money, though I've never paid, I definetly would. And when they come to montreal this sumemr I'll have to pay , ahh the independence of living on your own
