“Enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Simply entertaining. Have seen the show twice and bought tickets for friends visiting town. I am not sure how this would compare to other Cirque shows as it's been a while since we saw one in the round. Ticket prices are fairly expensive, but certainly a really enjoyable experience

“Brilliant production”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We got good tickets on the day and only paid $73 per ticket. We haven't seen any other Cirque productions but thought this was brilliant, so well produced, choreographed and great fun. Imagine directing/producing a cast that large! great value and one of the best experiences of our trip

“Not the top of my Cirque list but close...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This is our 11th Cirque show...we enjoyed Iris. The costumes and set were amazing...as usual. My husband loved it more than the rest because the music was mostly in English - LOL.

I liked being able to walk through the Kodak Theater. It's pretty amazing.

Sorry it's closing. I would've seen it again. :)

“Christmas gift from the kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Great show that my wife and I enjoyed. Lots of flexibility and strength in these performers. The kids got us balcony seats and front row where you could view the whole stage.

“Excellent but not the best Cirque du Soleil”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

As always the performance was top notch, but the production did not match the shows in Las Vegas. Maybe because it was done in a traditional theater, but it didn't work as well and wasn't as impressive as usual.
