Many of us said we like it.

Pat McGuire, Greg Kennedy, and the great Anthony Gatto are all employed by Cirque du Soleil, and I firmly believe that all jugglers should support their art. The rest of you complaiers can kiss my ***

Wow you get more cranky and incoherant every post LOL.

In truth Al, most of the new Cirque offerings people are speaking of don't exactly employ a juggler anyhow. Ka, and Mystere for example have no jugglers, and I do not think that "O" does either. But keep talking it is what you do best.

"KA" is a phenomenal production on every level but story. It has a pretty interesting voice over to start, and then you can sort of follow the twins. It is as coherant a story as you get out of most of the shows. But the show is like a friend of mine described. "It is dreaming in 3D". I agree. The arrow wall scene is breathtaking. The final wheel of death sequence is unreal. (I know the people who do it so I am biased. But I tell you this. 2 teams have lost people attempting to knock it off.)

We saw KA a couple of times. Once from the private booth upstairs by the lights and the other times in the audience. Much better experience in the audience for me. I tell you what Cirque' knows how to do well. What they lack in story, they make up for in arena. You step in and your sense of arrival is just phenomenal. You are lost in their world. It is second to none. They make it an experience, not a show.

I've seen a few Cirque shows when they were shown on television and saw La Nouba twice when I was working for Disney. Count me in as a fan. I'm kicking myself for not going to see Ka while I was in Vegas earlier this year, but it will definitely be the first thing I book on my next trip (after air and hotel, of course).

Lots of monied people put money into things they like, but whose appeal is generally...not general among the general public Smile
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".
