I’m a big, big, big fan of Cirque du Soleil. Have you ever been?
Anyone who’s seen their shows is like me — they’ve still got stars in their eyes and can talk about it for hours. However, I had trouble with the idea of the circus at first. I remember the circus when I was a child, the weird moments, the sad animals and the clowns who really weren’t funny.
And that’s the great thing about Cirque du Soleil. There are no animals — just performances, beautiful sets, costumes, and mind-blowing music. Everything is immaculate and gorgeous, down to the smallest details. It’s a kind of happy, exuberant perfection that shows you how spectacular a live show can be. And there are clowns, really funny ones.
