This Cirque show was fabulous! Very fitting to have seen it at the Kodak Theater on Hollywood Blvd as the theme of film and showbiz runs throughout. I took my Mother for Mother's Day and it's too bad that the show has now moved on and is now longer playing at the Los Angeles location.

This was one of the most intense entertainment I've seen! Very colorful, definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat, truly gifted performers. It is well worth the price of admission and will definitely bring the family on our next trip to Hollywood! It is so much better in person; I don't think I blinked once, I didn't want... More

The show was great. Drinks weren't cheap and my bf got in trouble for taking pictures. lol. Over all very entertaining and a historically acurate portrayal of the 20's Hollywood scene.

So - my friend and I have a fun agreement. No gifts for our birthday.... let's just do something together fun. So off to a Cirque show. I truly loved this very entertaining show. I even bought a souvenir cup at the bar at intermission.

You've gotta take kids to this great show. Their reactions to the stupendous acrobatics is worth the price of admission. They are fascinated and amazed to see humans doing things they've only seen in movies and on TV through special effects.

IRIS was the fifth Cirque du Soleil show we've seen and was enjoyable, but over priced. The Hollywood Blvd area is a colorful area to visit. Safe I'm sure, but be mindful of your surroundings. Not sure if the show is still running.

We've been to several Cirque du Soleil shows and been mesmorized by the talent, the costumes, and the choreography, so we eagerly looked forward to adding LA's Cirque show to our list. We were disappointed, especially given the cost of the tickets. The venue is smaller, the stage is quite small, and the show seemed shorter than others. Far less... More

I went to the show with my family. The show was great and involved many talented performers. The only thing is I felt the stage was too small at times and too many things were going on that my eyes couldn't decide what to focus on. Overall, it was a great experience and can't wait till my next Cirque du... More

Although this is another Cirque du Soleil, it was produced well and with some unique concepts. The theme was original and the execution was quite good.

My boyfriend took me for our anniversary. It was a truly amazing show with great talent. There is some crowd participation so if you want to get into the act, arrive early. The actors and performers greet people as they take their seats. My boyfriend was a contender but he wasn't chosen. We had a very memorable time.
