How many people can say that they had “good, clean fun” in Detroit for a night? Face it, Detroit has a bad reputation.
My husband and I were able to attend a Cirque du Soleil performance tonight at a rather large venue. The show was called “Crystal”. The advertising has been particularly absent of a storyline and in following that respect; I won’t ruin it for you.
But here’s how it went…
We spent five hours traveling south to see it. Right now we’re in the hotel room. We’re getting too… (old or something) to drive down, see a show and then whip around to drive home in the same night. Especially when it’s this far from home.
So it’s 3:50 am and true to form I’m wide awake remembering the show. Those artists were incredible! They had me ooooohhhing, aaaahhhhhhing and ddduuuuuuudddddeee-ing. Their show used an ice rink as its base. That was already impressive (*hint, rationale for getting the tickets).
They danced, swung from dropped swings, stepped all over each other to perform crazy cool stunts and flew! Now I know where Pink got some of her stage/ air tactics. This show of stunts was definitely not for the faint of heart!
However, it was for the family. It was beautiful, sparkly, one-of-a-kind enjoyment. The tricks, dancing and sheer strength that the individual performers have is remarkable!
Plus, the Zambony came out at intermission. (C’mon you know that you still want to drive the Zambony, or your inner child does. Mine does).
All in all, I am most happy to say that we had good, clean fun tonight. We got along great. My pants only got a little bit caught in the escalator, and our hotel room is lovely.
I can hear the rain outside and it’s pulling me back to my sleep rhythm. So I will sign off for now.
🌞 Merci! 🌞
