I hated it..the show is mostly dancing not real cirque de Soleil that I knew. the performers are good but the blinding lights on stage ruined the show. I do not recommend it at all. You’re better off staying home.

Unfortunately it was not what I expected. It appeared moreso that these performers were possibly in “cirque training”. Balcony seats for this show are not worth the money since the stage is too small for the performance to be at eye level. People showing up late and obstructing views for long periods of time. Don’t be fooled by the “cirque” name. It absolutely does not compare with the true acrobats many of us expect from Cirque. Definitely family friendly, just not edge of your seat performance. Would not recommend the show, especially with the deep price tag.

It was so bad. Had nothing to do with cirque de soleil. Seen better from kids on the east river park. Not only was it just terrible as a performance or piece of theater( I would even call it that ) the people who ran the show let tons of people walk around in front of your seat, anytime. Usher actually stood in front of me for a long time. Totally disrespectful. My two little guests 8-5 years old where underwhelmed. A total waste of $720. I want my money back.

As others have said, this should be an embarrassment for the cirque brand. I’d like my money back if I could get it. A couple of ok acts (maybe 10 mins worth) but otherwise a lot of filler/fluff including watching people in pajamas have a very long pillow fight, a guy trying to get the audience to engage and cheer, really poorly done dance numbers and generally underwhelming acrobatics which was really just tumbling that you’d see at a middle school gymnastics tournament. Very very disappointing.

It was extremely expensive for what it was. The theatre itself feels like you are in a high school gymnasium. The seating is flat so it's very difficult to see the stage. People were talking throughout and taking videos and photos, with no real support from staff to try to manage this. The entry into the theatre was confusing (due to a rangers game) and the lines were mismanaged by staff resulting in many people not being admitted until after the start of the show which was disruptive to those of us already sat down. Again, overall impression was that it was far too much money to pay for a production (lacking a wow factor) and environment that was subpar. Rockettes tickets were cheaper and the entire experience far better.

The show was awful. Said 90 minutes in length. Definitely not. I’ve seen better choreography out of local dance studios. Paid $200/ticket. Shame on me. Don’t waste your money. Bad for cirque brand. Expected sooooo much more.

Far below standards even for regular show. Did’ t expect from CDS to be such a poor setting and performance. Not worth the time and money. Spent over 400 for tickets. Feel scammed
