Circque du Soleil

We went to Cirque du Soleil last weekend. My son had to give up a trip to Knotts Berry Farm with a neighbor, but I'd purchased tickets a long time ago. Seats were nearly perfect: "center court", three rows back from an aisle that gave a straight view down to the stage.

I'd been to an ersatz Cirque a while back ("Cirque Dreams" when the South Bay Civic Light Theater was still bringing in outsiders instead of producing locally) and been disappointed. The real deal was quite a bit better. I guess you get what you pay for.


  1. We went on a weeknight and were able to move to "better" seats than we had paid for, but our original seats, although further back and off to the side, had a fine view.

    The six of us would have made more of an effort to carpool if we had known parking would be $22. Still, good show!

  2. We paid $19 to park at the matinée, which I consider an outrage.

    The concessions were a joke as well with $5.75 medium sodas.
