I didn't pay full price so I feel I got my money's worth. However, this was more about Cirque than it was about Michael, which is where they went wrong. The first half was a mix of a lot of songs I'd never heard before - that's not why I came to this. And many of my favorites (Remember The Time) were a mere sound clip, disappointed. The 2nd half was better, actually was moved to tears right before the awesome finale. The acrobats on the trampolines were the best part because they were on the center stage. So much of the show was lost and felt 2D because it was on the back stage farthest away from the audience. I don't know how they could have messed up that opportunity. I would have been 100% satisfied had they performed more than 1/3 of the show on the center stage. More oversized visuals (like the boy in the window) would have worked really well here. They simply did not 1) size up the production to it's surroundings and 2) honor Michael the way he should have been. The whole production felt like it was thrown together quickly, aside from the visual effects - which were fabulous. I'm still glad I went but not up to par with what I expect from Cirque.
