I haven't enjoyed a performance this much in some time. Frankly, I liked it much better than The Book of Mormon (on Broadway, and relative to those tickets, Cirque was a bargain), and the boys were awestruck.
Trampolines, contortionists, a juggler, incredible sets and props, Olympics-worthy athletes, hella good musicians (seriously, I almost bought the soundtrack), and the most amazing yo-yo guy I've ever seen made for a really fun two hours.
The kids got invited to walk through backstage and then over the bridge on stage before the show started, and because they needed an adult accompaniment, I got to go too!
Everyone associated with the show was a consummate professional and extremely friendly. Truly, it couldn't have been a cooler afternoon.
Kurios, Cabinet of Curiosities, runs through September 18, and I enthusiastically suggest you get tickets and go if you can. You can even get a fetching pair of aviator goggles if you so desire. Jack and I chose the puzzle, natch.
