This is one of the more bizarre shows I've seen. To be honest, I found it to be one of the most boring and monotonous shows I've ever seen. I could't wait for it to end. But, art is subjective, and I have to give some credit to my 11 year old son actually enjoying it. Fair do's. I'll give it that extra star on his behalf. if you do go then you need to be accessible to the performers. If you are elevated, in the Circle or Gods then don't bother. You'll miss out on what little fun is on offer.

The show was given rave reviews assisted by Slava's association with cirque du sole whose shows I see and greatly enjoy each time they come to melbourne, however I was sadly disappointed, especially in the very slow moving and boring second half, so much so that Ieft early.
I wouldn't recommend this show at all

Went to Driving Miss Daisy. It was fantastic, packed out. Ice Creams too expensive ... Why? tickets were pricey which is fine, its what I expect to pay for good theatre, but the ice cream ott. And Theatre is lovely, but can't they do something with the toilets?, Melbourne Public toilets are in better condition
