I had such high expectations. I have seen many Cirque shows in Vegas, Orlando and Phila. I see a broadway show in NY every year. We paid $200 per ticket. I wish I had read the reviews. Very disappointed. 10% of it was good… typical acrobatics you would expect. The rest was very amateur. I do not recommend it. I really want my money back.

Lower your expectations… then lower it some more. We took a family of 11, so it was an expensive night. The show is not worthy of being performed at the Chicago Theatre. Maybe better suited at a community college for $15 bucks/ticket. Save your time and money… so many more better shows out there.

I have honestly never wanted my money back after a show before. I was sorely disappointed with this production. The storyline was bizarre. There was a scene where a guy was pretending to be a cat hacking up fur balls and pooping in a litter box that had nothing g to do with the play and was uncomfortable. The music sound quality was severely lacking. The scenery was bare, low budget and not at all magical. Although i can appreciate the acrobatics—Our Highschool has put on more professional looking productions. . The price of the tickets warrants a bit more effort for this one.

This was supposed to be the highlight of our Thanksgiving trip to Chicago. What a disappointment. There were 10 of us. At $65 a ticket it came to $650. I have seen better entertainment at a grade school or high school presentation. Talent—yes. But not was expected from Cirque presentations. If shows like this were put on in Vegas you’d be run out of town. Mostly folks dancing around with very simple dance steps. Lots of tumbling which can be seen in any gym class. Some “cat” scene that had no Cirque qualities and seemed to last forever. Hula hoops with flashing lights...lighted balls thrown around...”reindeers” that could tumble (so can my 10 yr old granddaughter). The 2 or 3 aerial presentations were OK but were a very small part of the show. All in all a very disappointing evening. If I ever do get to Vegas I doubt I would come see your show. With parking and dinner and your show it was a thousand dollar evening. We expected to see so much more. You can’t rest on your laurels.

Ticket buyer beware! I’ve seen over a dozen Cirque productions and this was by far the worst! Not at all up to the Cirque wonder, wizardry or musicality of any past shows. If you’ve seen Zumanity in Vegas then you know that Cirque can do small spaces. It needs a LOT of work to improve the overall presentation. Go see White Christmas @ the Cadillac Theatre!

Худшее шоу

Этопародия на цирк дюсолей, ничего общего с настоящим цирком . Ни сюжета ни музыки. Акробаты с лишним весом и не синхронность в танцах. Сцена для вокальных певцов но никак не для цирка. Цена билетов это просто не качественный продукт за большие деньги . Мне кажется это закат проекта Дюсолей. Я бы вернул деньги , подскажите как ?

The acrobatics were impressive, but the storyline, music and sound quality were severely lacking. It felt like I was stuck in a bad techno dance club, not sitting in the Chicago Theater. With music blasting at beyond 10 decibels and terrible acoustics, I could barely concentrate on and appreciate the acrobatics. It was Cirque du Soleil’s terrible attempt at putting on a musical. Don’t waste your time or money on this!
