Had a fabulous evening in Chicago with my Son. Must take the grandbabes to see this next time their in Chicago.

5.0 star rating John B. from Chicago, Illinois


This show was great. This is my first experience with Cirque du Soleil so I don't have the high falutin Vegas benchmark, but I thought the talent was professional, well beyond high school, and there was definitely no weird cat pooping scene during the show that someone mentioned. My kids enjoyed the show and we were in the nosebleeds. Tickets cost $30 to $80 whereas in Vegas they cost $80 to $200. I was thoroughly impressed by the performers and would see this show again. The skaters stood out as well as the bicycle riding, don't think I've ever seen someone ride a bike like that before. My recommendation is to park in the theatre district self park garage at 181 N Dearborn, definitely use spothero app on your phone or else you will pay significantly more to park. Like $20 vs $60. Christkindlmart is only a few blocks away in Daley Plaza for the holidays, so make an evening of it.

The show was very enchanting, really putting you into the holiday spirit. The cast was phenomenal, the remixes of Christmas music were amazing, the dancing and acrobatics were on point, and even the story (that most Cirque shows do not have) was heart warming. I'd definitely recommend it!

Nothing special. Set was boring and never changed. Maybe I’m spoiled by seeing performances by Cirques at the Shakespeare theatre and Las Vegas. If you haven’t seen the real thing you may be okay with this weak imitation and you don’t expect much.

I have honestly never wanted my money back after a show before. I was sorely disappointed with this production. The storyline was bizarre. There was a scene where a guy was pretending to be a cat hacking up fur balls and pooping in a litter box that had nothing g to do with the play and was uncomfortable. The music sound quality was severely lacking. The scenery was bare, low budget and not at all magical. Although i can appreciate the acrobatics—Our Highschool has put on more professional looking productions. . The price of the tickets warrants a bit more effort for this one.

This was supposed to be the highlight of our Thanksgiving trip to Chicago. What a disappointment. There were 10 of us. At $65 a ticket it came to $650. I have seen better entertainment at a grade school or high school presentation. Talent—yes. But not was expected from Cirque presentations. If shows like this were put on in Vegas you’d be run out of town. Mostly folks dancing around with very simple dance steps. Lots of tumbling which can be seen in any gym class. Some “cat” scene that had no Cirque qualities and seemed to last forever. Hula hoops with flashing lights...lighted balls thrown around...”reindeers” that could tumble (so can my 10 yr old granddaughter). The 2 or 3 aerial presentations were OK but were a very small part of the show. All in all a very disappointing evening. If I ever do get to Vegas I doubt I would come see your show. With parking and dinner and your show it was a thousand dollar evening. We expected to see so much more. You can’t rest on your laurels.
