Price Level 1 (Adult)
How was your experience?
I'll confess to being somewhat of a "Cirque Junkie", but honestly, this show features all the reasons why I love them so much!!! The costumes, the simple yet fascinating set design, the video elements, the athleticism of the performers, among which, include the musicians...it truly can't be beat!! Goldstar made it even better by providing affordable access to this great show. We purchased Level 1 tickets, however were upgraded to Premium; we were 5 rows from the stage, just off center. It was a FANTASTIC night! My only quibble would be in the expense of Cirque themselves, not Goldstar at all. This venue was in San Pedro, at the Port of Los Angeles. Honestly, there is NOTHING but empty lots and parking ALL around, yet still Cirque is charging $10 for parking! Being from the LA Metro area, I'm used to being charged for parking. This, however, felt like out and out robbery! On top of that, we paid $5 for a 750 ml bottle of water. Wow. Just....WOW! Still, my lights have not been dimmed for Cirque, I can't get enough. LA Metro people, grab this bargain while you still can!!! It is soon to move to Irvine, and not sure that the awesome upgrades will happen at that venue. It was a DELIGHT not to have to fuss with the traffic getting to the typical location in Santa Monica at the pier. GO...you won't be sorry!
