Cirque du Soleil

Published:

Always wanted to know what that big tent was about on Broad Street.  One day I bought tickets to the show and I have never been the same since.  It was magical, it was fun, it stirred my imagination.  I was a little kid for the night. 

If you can go - see what the big tent holds for you.  I am planning to return to that big tent, but it won't be on broad street, its further down in South Philly, no matter I'm going.  I can't wait to buy my tickets and wait for the night of the show.  I still have my funny hat that I bought the last time and plan to wear it to the show.  This time I'll buy a baseball cap type and not a top hat so I can wear it every day.  Can't wear that top hat every day.

I am so happy!!!  I just got my email telling me they are coming to Philadelphia!!  I can be a kid again for one night!  I can't wait, its been a year since they were in town and its been a long year without them. 

The people on stage is amazing.  The jump about, the girls can move their bodies as if they were made of rubber, and I love the high flying acts. This time they have a fire routine.  The show is new with some of the normal things like those rubber girls.  There is a intermission where we are served drinks and snacks, they give you a free upgrade for the tickets if you join the club, I joined. 

The actors and performers will mingle with you, and you are in awe of them.  I love the circus, but I especially love Cirque du Soleil.

It is not Ringling Brothers, that is for sure.   It is magical, I saw Saltimbanco when it first debuted in '94?. It was a rock-circus-opera-aerial-ballet, the music, the performers, the story line, all perfectly synced in a single big top tent was wonderfully entertaining.

Seen a couple of different performances on television. It is something else, very entertaining though I find myself squinching when I watch the "rubber bodies." I always wonder how these people fare when they get older. Can you say "back pain"?
