Just saw Varekai in Indianapolis yesterday and LOVED it. It is true that this one is probably the least explosive of all the Cirque Du Soleil I have seen so far (8 or 9?), but come one - it's Cirque Du Soleil!! I'd take it on it's worst day all day long. I do wish there was a program - I enjoy knowing the idea of the story while watching the show. But I would still highly recommend any Cirque show - this one included.

Just came back from Varekai in Providence RI, loved loved loved it. Performers are as usual outstanding, awe inspiring and always make me cry, it's so beautiful. Thank you for another great show, I've seen at least 20 so far. Patricia Braswell July 6, 2014

We went to see this show on Saturday as part of my birthday celebration. What a disappointment. The comedy wasn't funny,& the music grated on our nerves. The only good part was the acrobatics and there was very little. We have been to other shows and enjoyed them but now I would hesitate to go again.

I just saw the show last night (June 20th)in Bangor Maine and was AWESOME!!! I've also seen La Nouba and loved that one also. I'm so glad they finaly came to Maine and will go every time they come to my area.

I've been to two shows before this one--this was by far my least favorite. There were no programs so I had no idea of the story line behind the performance. There was a central character that was an old man who was VERY annoying, and another character with a lightbulb on his head--they took up a substantial portion running around stage arguing with each other? The acrobats were phenomenal as always.

This is my second Cirque show: the first being OVO. I loved the show. There did seem to be a little less acrobatic content and more artistry, but that is ok. My only negative was some of the comedy that was extremely adult in content and there were many young people in audience. It was quite embarrassing .

I am so grateful to my husband for letting me buy tickets to our first Cirque show for his birthday! I've wanted to see them forever; FINALLY I could! What an incredible experience. Performers & performances are breathtaking & I'm sure that my heart stopped more than once! We are torn between seeing more shows asap or saving for a backstage experience, but I am so excited that I think I just have to keep seeing more shows for awhile. Thank you so much for such wonderful entertainment!

The quality of the artists for the show was excellent, as always. This is my 14th Cirque show. I wasn't crazy about the show. Different shows appeal to different people. I would put this in the middle of my list.
