This was my fifth different Cirque show (I have seen them in two states), and the by far the worst. It had hardly any acrobatics or excitement. The first half of the show was dancers rolling around on the floor and a comedy routine with a man in a grass skirt and a cart, which made no sense. No one in the audience was laughing. I talked my husband into going and was actually embarrassed as I had told him how exciting the show would be. I will think twice before attending another show.

Varekai is my favorite show and the live performance in East Lansing left nothing but amazement. I hope to see many more shows in the future!

Went to my first Cirque du Soleil performance this past weekend in East Lansing. It definitely won't be the last show I will attend. It was an awesome performance and great job by the artist and performers. A job well done. I highly recommended to my friends and co-workers that they need to attend a show. Bravo!

I loved it!! Costumes looked incredible, clowns made me crack up, acts were insane, but it wasn't better than Alegria.

Show in pensacola was canceled due to technical issues just after it started. It was the last showing after 3 days of shows. Seems they would of had it all worked out after the 4th show. Seems they just cut their losses being the last show as im sure they would of found a fix had it been the first show. It was our 23rd anniversary and my wife was looking forward to seeing a Cirque Du Soleil show for the first time. Maybe another one will come by close some day.

I'm sure the show would have been wonderful had it not been cancelled. I brought my eight year old daughter tickets up close because she loved the movie. We were so disappointed. It might have been nice if the performers reached out to the children in the audience and took pictures with them or something to help make up for this. It was the last show so we were left with, sorry the show is cancelled, you can get a refund.
