“What a blast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

This one rivals Mystere in Vegas. It has so much going on at times, it's like a virtual carnival. The performers were fantastic and deserved every bit of the ovation they received.

From the first act, to the last, it was fun for grandma, girlfriend and 10-year old alike. Overall, it was an exciting display of talents by a group of extremely talented (and flexible) performers.

“Exciting Show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

This was a great show at the Kodak Theater. There really isn't a bad seat in the house. The show is funny and awe inspiring. It's also a hoot to be in the home of the Academy Awards.

“WOW! Best Cirque show I've seen!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

I've seen a few Cirque shows and this one was by far the best. I probably enjoyed this one more than others because of the content.. It's all about cinematography and done in an old school, vintage-esque way. A beautiful show, I couldn't take my eyes off the performance. Money well spent!

“Stunning. Non-Stop sensory engagement!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

Loved the costumes and general homage to this nascent period of film history. Wished the scope or visual perspective was not just limited more or less to the theater's stage but rather more spherical as other Cirque shoes are. Overall a destination for visitors and aficionados of fanfare which bursts from every performance.
