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 to miss a thing!

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.
