From a purely artistic point of view, Mystere is an incredible production. I really liked the use of black lights to produce a surreal and dramatic background in addition to the multi-colored lights. The fog really helped to create a mysterious feeling. The costumes were incredible, bright, weird, outlandish. I really liked the fact they used a band to create the music. Singers were on one side, guitars on the other side, and the drummer was sort of in his own space. The live music really helped to hit home.
The choreographers did an outstanding job because they accomplished what every entertainer sets out to accomplish in 2019: sensory overload. The performers aren't just being on stage. They are in the air, all around you, suspended from the ceiling, crawling from little corners on the sides of the auditorium, coming from below the stage (the stage not only lifts, it drops and it rotates too) it seems like people are everywhere.
From a purely technical, and acrobatic point of view, the show was rather mediocre. I'm 49 yrs old, have seen all kinds of High School acrobatics, Circus Circus, Chinese Acrobats in China, etc. On a scale of 1-10, nothing they did was extraordinarily difficult. I guess they want to keep it safe for the families in attendance. Don't get me wrong, there were plenty of oohs and ahhs to be seen, but there was nothing I haven't seen before.
The use of a hype man before the show started was very entertaining. A man goes around throwing popcorn, water and other stuffs at people in the audience. He later shows up in the show again. There was a large man dressed as a baby who was pretty entertaining as well, strange, but entertaining. These were crowd favorites, sort of a sideshow which added a nice touch of humor and levity to the evening, sort of like clowns at a rodeo.
So that's my review in a nutshell, very high artistic marks for costumes, music, lighting and sound. That's what you're really paying for here. The acrobatics were very good, but not mind blowing. They would have to up the level of difficulty for me to push it into the next sphere.
