Cirque du Soleil ... Kooza

In case anyone is wondering why you haven't seen me around the blogs lately, I have visitors for the next few days, and we've been very busy -- having fun! Yesterday we went to Cirque du Soleil "Kooza". I have seen a couple of Cirque du Soleil shows, but this is by far the best, and puts the "spectacular" back into "spectacle". I am usually a very polite spectator, and I clap graciously at all the right moments, but yesterday I heard someone hollering "whoo...! whoo...!" and I realized it was me.

Me...!

What an amazing show.  It's colorful and exciting, and ... amazing. If you have a chance to see this performance, grab some kids and take them to see it. You'll all love it.

I surreptitiously taped one of the acts, it was so wonderful.  I know... I know... As my friend Susan says, people have been fried at the stake for less, but I wanted to share it with you. Oh, and that "whooing" you hear? That's me...

Your gushing review is documented well with your surreptitious video. Wow! (I'll keep the secret.)

I've seen some amazing circus acts, but they look really, really amazing. I shall have to get tickets if they grace England with their presence. Glad you had a good time, wishing you all the best, Jo :D

Amazing performance! You must have had very good seats. I'm so glad no frying took place. It must be hard to shoot furtive videos while hooting loudly -- you are clearly a woman of many talents. Thanks for sharing, Jo.

Wow! My stomach was doing flip flops just watching that. That was awesome!

I went to a Cirque du Soleil in Denver once, and it was truly amazing. Thanks for the sneak peek into "Kooza." And yes, you were truly shouting for joy!!

Thank you honey for leaving me such a sweet comment and get well wishes. I truly appreciate you

If you could "surreptitously" film the whole show, I can link you to my friendly neighborhood illegal copied video seller. Glad to help you along in your new career in crime.

Seriously though, thanks for sharing.

I'm envious. Would love to see that show.

Thanks for sharing this Jo! The closest I have come to seeing one of their shows was a few years back when they had a documentry/reality show type thing that followed some of the performers as they developed their acts for the show. It was amazing to see all the work they did.

Just stopping by to drop off this: "Hello, Dah-ling!" (P.S. Glad to hear you and your friends had BIGTOP fun at the Cirque. Thanks for sharing!)

Thanks for the sneak peek Jo. Before I leave this planet I want to see a live performance of Cirque du Soleil. I've seen it on television, but I'm sure there's nothing like the real thing.
