When we arrived we were excited to see a big white tent set up right in the parking lot of the stadium. It was so fun to see that, and we were excited to see what was inside! We were a little worried though, because we live in Arizona and it is June, and hot... so very hot. We were very relieved to feel how cool and comfortable it was inside! The minute we stepped inside we felt like we were in another world.
We were very close to the stage (there is not a bad seat in the house!). While waiting for the show to start my director's mind was checking out the rigging and the set and staging. I was so impressed with all of it!
Then the show started and I forgot all about the rigging, the staging, and the set. I was instantly swept away in the story, and the acts. I felt like a little girl all over again as I watched the acts. Every one of them was amazing! I particularly loved the high wire act. I even gasped out loud several times during their act and also the Wheel of Death!
Thank goodness for intermission so I could catch my breath and calm my quickly beating heart. Oh, and did I mention they had cupcakes? Beautiful, delicious cupcakes!
We enjoyed the whole evening and are still talking about it with anyone who will listen! If you get a chance, go see Cirque Du Soleil Kooza!
