What the media say about the show

"Michael Jackson would have loved this show. It's big and bright and outrageous. Some of it doesn't even seem possible. Amazing music, killer choreography, stellar costumes, and a ridiculously talented cast make this show shine. "
Huffington Post
"Singing Pageant of Pop, With a Circus Atmosphere… He probably would have savored this family-friendly extravaganza."
The New York Times
"There were colors everywhere. The choreography was out of this world and the technique impeccable. Michael Jackson had only the best dancers by his side, and this crew easily fit that mold. If you love Michael Jackson, or razor-sharp choreography, or '80s and '90s nostalgia in any way, you will love this show."
LA Weekly
"Cirque du Soleil, famous for their spectacular and grandiose shows, transformed the Center into a fantastical Neverland where the power of lighting, props and acrobatics created a sense of magic and child-like wonder Jackson so famously revered."

I went last night and felt utterly robbed. It was SO disappointing. Mostly choreographed dance routines and not very good ones at that. I was a HUGE Michael Jackson fan so I was expecting more. I expected acts/acrobatics exclusive to Cirque Du Soleil. Not very much of that. Also, when the crowd was dancing and enjoying it the set switched to his slow music. No continuity. Please save your money. I wish I had reviewed other comments before my purchase!

I was very disappointed by this show. I have been to 7 different shows throughout the country; it was embarrassing to watch the lack up energy or effort put into the set up performances for the show, the athletes/performers were all great but the choreographer just did not do the show justice. If I could send a message to anyone looking to purchase tickets, buy a Michael Jackson CD and save yourself $90 a seat. The show was so bad I may never see another Cirque du Soleil show again.

So disappointing. I'm a big MJ fan and have heard so many great things about Cirque...With that I thought, OMG what a combination, I am soooo there. WOOMP WOOMP... Well it was a BIG LET DOWN. There were no amazing acrobats, no wow, no stunning sets. The only dancer who got the audience to clap and move was a one legged dancer who stole the show. long story shot DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY ON THIS..fyi---->I got more circique from a pink concert!

Creativity was astounding! Technically superb. If you went with any pre-expectations, certainly you missed the moment. It WAS NOT an Impersonations show.If you left the Theater and didn't come away with the profound sense of Cirque's only mission,which was to capture and present the Spirit of WHO Michael Jackson was in his sincere Love, Passion of Music, human beings,and Life itself. Anything else, misses the point of this show.

We saw the show in Dallas last night. Having seen many Cirque du Soleil performances, I was unpleasantly surprised at the quality of this show. We sat in the upper balcony of a big arena, so perhaps my perspective was tainted by the lack of intimacy in the experience. But, I was bored much of the time. Too expensive for what it was. Boo! That said, we saw Kurios in Montreal last month and liked it much better. Nothing beats O, to me. But, I have not seen them all.

Unbelievable choreography, fantastic special effects, amazing dancing, terrific sound. One of the best Cirque shows we have seen. A Must Go for anyone who likes Michael Jackson's music.

The show was great, but the main guy who was portraying Michael was awful. He just flaps his arms in the air pretty much. I didn't see him do one Michael Jackson move! I saw kids during the intermission that could have done a better job then him! I felt like I wasted a lot of money getting extremely good seats for this concert because of him. Horrilble casting on cirque du soleil part.

Guy, shame on you! Ok, tent vs temp venue - people streaming in throughout 1st act and doing bathroom and booze throughout the show. House lights @ 25% throughout show. Never in the tent. Michael - 90%, Cirque - 10%, and at that weak Cirque. Saw the Michael One trailer from Vegas and no comparison to Immortal. I can see very good dancing on "So You Think You Can Dance"! Really a waste of $100 per seat. BTW, we've seen 6 Cirque tent shows and incredibly enjoyed them all. Only blue tent.

Shame on Cirque for staging this disjointed debacle in arenas. I have seen many other shows and never had a bad seat when presented in a tent. They did not adjust the stage or production for arena viewing but collect admission on seats so far away you would have done better watching on tv. I really like Michael Jackson's music and love Cirque but this is a travesty.
