Cirque du Soleil: Alegria

Saw Cirque du Soleil for the first time tonight.

It was jaw-droppingly remarkable.

One can see a list of acts here, but a simple text listing in no way conveys the dynamic of bodies hurtling through space, tumbling toward you, with glitter, lights, and soaring music as accompaniment. It doesn't convey the sense of walking into a human-sized aviary, complete with twittering birds and flying men.

"Power Track" (formerly known as "Fast Track") was my favorite act.



I bought the DVD on the spot, but it doesn't do justice to the reality. I'm hooked.

A&E ran a Cirq Sunday a few weeks ago, I've seen them on a few other specials as well. I can do without thier clowns, but the acrobats do things that are downright amazing and I would tell a player was impossible if they tried to do it in a game I ran. Amazing.

I will definitely have to pay attention to the television schedule to see when next A&E or Bravo is running something on Cirque.

I liked your comment about telling the player it was impossible. :)

*chuckles* Thank you. I called my parents as soon as it was decent to do so on Sunday to tell them that the very next time Cirque came, they were packing their bags and heading here to see them. :)

There are also the permanent shows in Orlando (Nouba) and Vegas (Mystere, O and Zumanity). :)

City of Heroes
Sorry for veering off topic, but I've finally got my copy of City of Heroes. I'm on the Virtue server at the moment, as you recommended. My character name is (surprise surprise) Lurch. I just finished the tutorial and I'm currently running around Galaxy City getting the feel of the game. See ya in game I suppose. :)

Re: City of Heroes
Hey, Banshee. What time do you usually play City of Heroes? I'm on there every day after work, but I've never seen you play. My characters name is now Nickolai (Lurch kindof got destroyed and Tesla was already taken). :) I thought I got a tell from you once, but I had no idea how to respond at the time. Anyway, look me up sometime. I need a team. :)

Re: City of Heroes
Yeah, I did send you a tell, but I never got a response, sugar! Sorry I missed you.

Go on and check us out at Roleplayers Only. If you make an account, I'll give you access to the City of Heroes forums. If you see posts by Nyah, that's me. :)
