Guess where I got to go on thursday night? Cirque du Soleil was doing their Varekai show and Tracy had bought us tickets as a valentines day gift for me. It was fantastic...much better than other "traveling" shows I've seen. I love them all, but way prefer the permanent shows in Las Vegas. Have seen them all, Mystere, O, and Ka. I was entranced with O and amazed at Ka. But Mystere was awesome too. To me, the trick is to get a seat close enough to the stage to see their costumes and make-up in detail...that's what makes it in my opinion...that and the music! Anyhow...we managed to get in row C on the side (which is actually 5 rows back from the stage) and the perfect spot in my opinion. Except for the fact that we felt like sardines all crammed into a can, it was a magical evening. They design the seats with those little itty bitty acrobats in mind, I'm sure of it! Highly recommended if you live in the vicinity.
