From the moment we stepped into the Canadian Tire Centre we knew something magical going to happen. The building was filled with an energy I had not felt before. Andie & I had never watched a Cirque show and we were not disappointed.
My first reaction to the merchandise was the wide variety of items and the quality. As with any event, the merch is not cheap.
I was also impressed with the audience interaction & mobile participation. If you are attending a show, ensure you charge your phone and download the app so you can be part of the TORUK experience.
The app will let you be part of the show during both acts and notify you when the intermission is ending.
This show is appropriate for audiences of all ages. There were many from the under 12 cohort in attendance, Andie gave the show two thumbs up for action and artistry.
The sets were breathtaking and a little overwhelming.
Andie was particularity impressed with the athleticism and strength of the performers.
This was our first Cirque Du Soleil show, but it definitely not be our last. Bravo!
