“Seen one, seen them all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

This is not much different from the other Cirque du Soliel performances, just with a Hollywood theme. If you don't mind that then it is fine.

“Loved this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

I really enjoyed this show. I am huge Cirque du Soleil fan and this show did not disappoint! I loved that some of the characters were in the audience before hand and they were very comical too. I also loved all the costumes and music. A great night out.

“It was pretty good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

I have seen a few of these, the performers are always amazing. It's a typical Cirque production. Performers flying all over the place creating sensory overload.

“Colorful and Fun Show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

This is a fairly typical Cirque show, but it is fun and colorful and entertaining. It is only a 90 minute show so it is possible to go to the show and goo out afterwards.

“They did it again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

After seeing four different Cirque du Soleil shows, I thought I would not be impressed by a fifth variation, but I have to concede that once again they have managed to turn out a creative and high-quality spectacle, interrupted several times by applause from the audience.

The music is also (again!) very impactful, setting the mood for great displays of acrobatic mastery, plus several comedy skits that provided variety and enjoyment.
